3RN Melbourne VIC 621 kHz QSL


3RN Melbourne, VIC was heard and identified for the first time on 621 kHz, a frequency usually dominated by co-channel Radio Botswana. The station was received in Fish Hoek on the 27th May with the SRF-M37V and 220 m BOG.

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

Google Earth Image of the 3RN transmitter site situated in the north-western suburbs of Melbourne at 37 43 19S / 144 46 58E. 3RN broadcasts with a power of 50kW on a 215m mast (one of the few remaining giant masts in Australia).

I just ran across your DX blog and your 1991 letter from Diego Garcia.
I had the pleasure of serving there and have pictures of the installation there on my website.
I thought that you might enjoy them.
