Australian broadcaster celebrating on shortwave

24 December 2017

As part of 50th celebrations, radio broadcaster 4KZ in Northern
Queensland is now on 5055 kHz and already getting signal reports
including from North America and New Zealand.

General Manager of NQ Radio (4KZ, 4AM, 4AY, KIK FM & KOOL FM), Al
Kirton announced the decision to SWLing Post in May, and now
confirms the transmission began on December 20.

He told the WIA: "Unfortunately we are on half power for a couple
of weeks until one of the RF boards can be repaired, then we will
go up to I kW."

The shortwave broadcast is from a site at east Innisfail in
Tropical North Queensland. Mr Kirton said the USA-made 1.2 kW
transmitter being used is feeding an Inverted V antenna at about
14 metres high at the peak.

The program is from the 4KZ and 4AY AM band transmitters and
designed to cover the Cape York area and the northern outback.
However the 60m band signal has been heard further away.

He said: "I have had many reception reports, many with audio
clips", some from Queensland, Northern Territory, New South Wales
and Victoria, as well as from "Monterey USA, Alberta Canada and
New Zealand."

The transmission hours are about 0500 to 2300 hours UTC. All
confirmed reception reports will receive a 4KZ shortwave QSL
card. No return postage is required.

Reports by email to Al Kirton ( or to Radio
4KZ, PO Box 19, Innisfail Queensland 4860 Australia.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation stopped its shortwave
services to the northern outback in January 2017.

Radio Caroline returns to the airwaves

Andy Malt 22 December 2017

Legendary pirate station Radio Caroline returned to
analogue radio, broadcasting on a frequency formerly used by the
BBC World Service. It's all legit now though, the station's
pirating days are long behind it.

The original offshore pirate station's appearance on medium wave
frequency 648kHz is the conclusion of a long campaign, started
with an early day motion in Parliament by Tracey Crouch MP in

Broadcasting online for more than a decade now, the station has
had various temporary licences on the more conventional airwaves,
and for the last couple of years a regular weekend spot on the
Isle Of Man's Manx Radio. However, this is the first time it's
been permanently available on AM since its pirate days came to an
end in the early 90s.

Currently operating on a local licence, allowing it to broadcast
to Suffolk and North Essex, Radio Caroline boss Peter Moore noted
the "ironic twist" of the station being given a former BBC
frequency – Radio 1 having been launched in 1967 in direct
response to the popularity of pirate stations.

"The unlikely return of Caroline to regular radio opens the
latest chapter in its extraordinary 53 year history", Moore told
the BBC. "Caroline was the first of many pirate stations to
broadcast from ships and abandoned wartime forts off the British
coast, opening at Easter 1964".

He added that, while technically it's only available in Suffolk
and Essex, it can be heard in other areas too, saying that "test
transmissions have reached further afield and it can be received
along much of the East Coast".
