ABC Radio National - 5RN (Adelaide)

ABC Radio National - 5RN, transmitting from Reynella (Pimpala) in South Australia, was heard on 18 February 2017, from 19.40 till 20.05 UTC in a largely talk format with guests and phone-in listeners. Reception on 729 kHz (MW) rated a SINPO of 24422 -- poor to fair signal depending on the length of fading, otherwise transmission was clear and discernible  for brief times. Audio level peaked approximately 20 to 30 minutes apart; otherwise signal was heard throughout the time monitored, but at a much weaker strength. Frequency was free of co-station interference at the time which made reception possible, much like sister station ABC Adelaide 891.

Reception report with audio files was emailed the following day, and Graham Himmelhoch-Mutton, Radio Master Control at ABC, kindly confirmed with an email on 22 February 2017.
