Signal was detected as early as 17.15 UTC, but it was barely audible on an otherwise clear frequency.

 ABC Adelaide (Station 5AN), transmitting from Adelaide (Pimpala) in South Australia, was received on 10 January 2017.

Reception on the medium-wave frequency of 891 kHz was (SINPO) 34522 -- poor to fair signal depending on the length of fading, otherwise clear audio.
