6NR Perth WA 927 kHz QSL and Audio

It was a pleasant surprise to hear and identify 6NR Perth WA on 927 kHz (A South African first) at Leisure Isle, Knysna on the 15th July 1987 via the FRG7 and 30 metre longwire antenna.

I was fortunate to receive a verification letter, 6NR stickers and a programme guide from Senior Technician Geoff Rowley in response to my reception report.

6NR has since moved from the mediumwave band to FM and presently broadcasts on a frequency of 101.1 MHz.
