Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Phil Brennan (VK8VWA), who notes that 4KZ started broadcasting today in Australia. Phil notes:
At last! ID for 4KZ confirmed at 0750 [UTC] Wednesday 20 December on 5,055 kHz.
Thank you, Phil–and thanks for following this development so closely over the past few weeks.
I tried tuning to 5055 kHz at my home in eastern North America, but of course conditions weren’t ideal to receive a 1,000 watt AM signal from Australia. I wasn’t ready to give up, of course, so I turned to the KiwiSDR network.
The following recording was made on December 20, 2017 starting around 11:33 UTC on 5,055 kHz . The receiver is a KiwiSDR located in Goulburn, NSW, Australia.
No details yet on where to send reception reports, but I will ask the station manager and post his reply in an update.
