Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Dan Hawkins, who writes:
Thomas, this RNZI transmission is on the new schedule:
RNZI is exceedingly well received at my location. That may have something to do with the following factors.
1. The RNZI antennas were designed, built and are maintained by a contractor located in the San Francisco Bay Area.
2. This contractor has SW receiver locations in the SF Bay Area.
3. I am located about 50 miles away from the SF Bay Area receivers and in-line to the New Zealand signal path.
Then again, maybe not. LOL.
Time: 09:00 10-31-2107 UTC. Frequency: 9765 kHz. Receiver location: Davis, California, USA. Radio:Sangean ATS-909X. Antenna: 83m horizontal loop. Transmission distance: 6,600 miles.
I do love RNZI–thanks for sharing, Dan. Indeed, since the demise of Radio Australia on, RNZI has become the voice of the Pacific on shortwave. Amazing signal!
