It was a pleasant surprise to receive 3ABN Busselton WA on 1629 kHz for the first time (A South African First) on the 8th April.
The 400 watt signal made it through over a distance of 8 500 km to Betty's Bay via the Sony SRF-M37V Ultralight receiver which was inductively coupled to a 60 metre BOG antenna.
3ABN Australia Co-Director Rosemary Malkiewycz kindly responded to my request for a verification with an interesting and detailed reply. Apparently the Busselton station only commenced operation on January 7, 2010.
Thank you Rosemary for the verification and your kind permission to post a station profile with photographs.

A brief recording of 3ABN Busselton on 1629 Khz, heard in Betty's Bay at 1830 UTC, is also available here and includes the beginning of the Christian programme "Lift Him Up".
