Ozy Music Radio (Razorback-Camden, Australia)

Ozy Music Radio, transmitting from Razorback near Camden, New South Wales (Australia), was logged on 31 January 2018, from 19.00 till 19.30 UTC. While reception was far from perfect, it was unmistakably Ozy Radio. The Aussie accents, the pop/rock format matched the station. Additionally, no other known station operates on this frequency -- 5.045 kHz.

Reception rated a SINPO of 15211 -- initially only carrier signal, fading in and under atmospheric noise, barely audible but content detected nevertheless. Reception before 16.00 UTC was next to impossible owing to station splatter from Beibu Bay Radio (China) on 5.050 KHz and AIR Kolkata (Jeypore, India) on 5.045 kHz. Frequency was clear when BBR signed-off at 16.00 UTC; AIR went off at 17.40 UTC but less of a problem.

It should be noted that Ozy Radio is usually observed -- at least in Malaysia -- around 19.00 UTC and for approximately 30 minutes to an hour.

Reception report was emailed on the following day, and John Wright -- the veri-signer -- confirmedon 2 February 2018 with an email.
