The Deniliquin Clock Tower. The town is situated on the banks of the Edward River in the Riverina region of New South Wales, close to the border with Victoria.

MW Radio Stations from New South Wales are rarely heard in Fish Hoek due to signal absorbtion from the auroral zone around the South Pole. However, stations from that part of the world do manage to get through during very quiet solar conditions.

The 2 kw signal from 2QN Deniliquin made it through on the 19th April and 27th May via the SRF-M37V and 220 m BOG.

Senior Announcer and News Director Graham Munson kindly verified my recepton report via email. Thank you to Samuel Gordon Stewart for providing the contact details.
