Radio Australia (via Brandon)

Radio Australia, transmitting from Brandon in Queensland was heard on 12 January 2012. Daily broadcast time is 21.00 to 11.00 UTC. A Pidgin English broadcast of news, music and special reports was monitored  from 10.00 to 11.00 UTC on 12.080 kHz. Reception (SINPO) before 10.00 UTC was impossible due to strong interference from China National Radio. At 10.00 UTC reception was 35333 -- fair signal strength coupled with atmospheric noise, otherwise clear and discernible speech. At 10.40 UTC reception improved to 45444 -- less atmospheric noise.

Reception report emailed and submitted online to Radio Australia. QSL card arrived on 15 May 2012.

  1. I have sent three reception reports to Radio Australia, but they haven't send me QSL verifications yet. I sent them a follow-up message and they informed me they will send me by mail my QSLs soon.
