“According to information from Radio Australia, there will be a drastic cut to their shortwave schedule starting 1st February 2015.
Only these transmissions from Shepparton will remain to the Pacific:
- 2100-0900 UTC on 15240, 15415, and 17840 kHz
- 0900-2100 UTC on 6080, 6150, and 9580 kHz
Their web site hasn’t yet been updated:
Radio Australia is a staple news source for many in the Pacific islands. Fortunately, RA plans to maintain shortwave services 24 hours per day via the frequencies above. I’m happy to see that 9580 kHz–which is a morning blowtorch signal into much of North America–will still be transmitted.
