Re: Did I just receive Australia?

So you need Potential Aussies on 10khz channels?
1620 is well documented but it sounds like thats off the top of your recording

Don’t forget Aus was possible on mw before they rechanneled, its only euro channel congestion blocking it. As the band starts to thin out this will become more regular

Re: Did I just receive Australia?

What was 1548 doing at the time?
Any x-band action?

Other sydney stuff should be visible at carrier level Bruce
