4LG Longreach QLD 1098 kHz QSL

It was a pleasant surprise to hear and identify 4LG Longreach, Queensland on 1098 kHz on the 24th March 2006 via the FRG7 and 160 metre BOG at Fish Hoek. 

The 2 kw signal made it through over a distance of 7 115 miles / 11 450 km. Co-channel 6MD Merredin WA is the usual dominant station heard on 1098 kHz during good reception conditions from Australia.

Station Manager Matt Stephens kindly verified my reception report via email.
