5AU Port Augusta SA 1242 kHz QSL and Audio

5AU Port Augusta SA on 1242 kHz was heard at Leisure Isle, Knysna on the 7th July 1987 via the FRG7 and 30 metre longwire antenna.

I was fortunate to receive the above verification from technician Tonnet Penascoza in response to my reception report.


5AU is one of the more regular Australian mediumwave stations heard at Fish Hoek. The 2kw signal can get through remakably well at times as was the case during the above recording, made on the 15th April 2009 at Fish Hoek via the Sony SRF-M37V Ultralight and 200 metre BOG.
