Triple J suffered major technical difficulties this morning.

TRIPLE J was plunged into silence this morning, with the radio station suffering major technical difficulties around Australia.

The outage started just before 8am AEDT and lasted more than an hour. Some listeners heard nothing while others heard a recorded announcement about the "reception difficulties".

Triple J didn't address the issue on social media for more than 30 minutes before finally explaining what was going on.

Listeners took to Twitter to share their confusion, anger and to poke some fun at Triple J over the issue.
