2VM Moree NSW 1530 QSL

The excellent reception from Australia on the 13th April included a surprise appearance of 2VM Moree, New South Wales on 1530 kHz for the first time at Fish Hoek (and possibly South Africa).

I was fortunate to hear the station id at the beginning of a weather report at 1705 hours UTC before the CMR (Country Music Radio) network program relay.

Today I received a QSL letter and stickers from General Manager Pat Hetherington who kindly verified my reception report. He added that the station uses a RCA Ampliphase transmitter and broadcasts from a five-eigth length mast with a power of 2 kw.
