5MV Renmark SA 1062 kHz QSL

Renmark is situated on the banks of the River Murray.

5MV Renmark was heard during the remarkable reception conditions experienced on the 18th May this year. The 2 kw signal made it through to Fish Hoek via the M37V Ultralight and 220 metre BOG.

During DU reception, 1062 kHz is usually occupied by 4TI Thursday Island which in itself is an interesting catch being the most distant Australian MW station from Fish Hoek (over 12 282 km away).

5MV made it through with some strong peaks on this occasion however and a lucky propagation break at 1805 UTC included a clear weather report for South Australia and a local "ABC South Australia and Broken Hill" id.

Graham from the ABC kindly verified my reception report and included a transmitter coverage map.
