List the stations you can receive


#1

I think this thread was on the old forum, but I couldn’t find it here – post your bandscans of all the radio stations you regularly receive at your location to compare radio variety around the country. I’ll start with a bandscan using my car’s stock radio in southern Sydney:

87.6 - LPON (Voice of Islam) - multiple transmitters
87.8 - LPON (Radio Austral) - multiple transmitters

#2

I receive most of the stations on tvcl’s list so it would be rather pointless to list them all again.

But on the mention of 2VTR/Hawkesbury Radio in Windsor, they’re going off the air soon (October 3, I believe) because ACMA didn’t renew their licence due to non-compliance issues. Although if their website is anything to go by, the station plans to continue broadcasting online while trying to get their licence back.

It’ll be very interesting to see if the cancellation of 2VTR’s licence opens up another DXing frequency (if only temporarily) in the very crowded FM band around this part of the world!


#3

#5

Interesting that’s there’s no 89.3 2GLF Liverpool or 89.7 2RES Waverley at your location?

And that you can get 98.7 2ABC but not 97.1 2RN from the same site, whose reception down this way I find to be as good as 98.7.


#6

89.7 and 89.3 are very weak here, and is under the splatter of 2VTR and 2BLU. These stations are at local strength thanks to the amplification of the masthead amp, and direct LOS to Katoomba / Kurrajong Heights. Even on the car radio they are difficult to receive here, and this has allowed ducting of News Radio from Bega / Cooma to be received her on 89.7. I believe 89.3 2GLF signal is very restricted to the north to stay out of 2SWR licence area.

2RN from Middle Brother cannot be received here under normal conditions as Nova is too powerful and its splatter conceals it.

98.7- 2ABC can be received here as 2OOO on 98.5, and 2JJJ on 98.9 are not strong enough to produce splatter to block it out.


#7

2VTR do plan on continuing on online.

Update for you all:
From what I’ve heard, 3 Hawkesbury Rotary clubs have joined together, & put in an application for the Temporary licence, there’s at least another 2 groups who are believed to have also put in an application for a temporary licence.
Applications closed yesterday, 22nd Sept 2017, so if ACMA deems any acceptable, that frequency mightn’t be off air for long, apparently the Rotary clubs group, can have a station on air within 2 days of being granted the temp. licence, as they have access to all equipment & a place needed to get on air.

Correction: 97.3 - 2OLD/ Lake Macquarie FM, isn’t at Morriset, the transmitter’s at Crangan Bay & the studio’s are at Halekulani (Bowling Club), both are out of the Lake Macquarie City LGA & the studio’s out of the licence area.


#8

Thanks, I knew about the studios being at Budgewoi and transmitter at Crangan Bay, BUT I was under the impression that the area they are servicing was SUPPOSED to be the south western edge of Lake Macquarie, centred around Morriset.

I don’t believe that station is really operating as how the ACMA intended.

Correct me if I’m wrong though.

You’ve left out 99.9 2JJJ.


#11

Fixed & JJJ is very easy to overlook here in right wing heartland :wink:


#12

That’s some pretty impressive range on the Knights Hill transmitters – must be 200 km+.

Following your list, I’ve updated mine to also include receivable co-channels, which takes it up to 71.


#13

Yes, I am 206 kms as the crow flies from Knights Hill, which at nearly 800 m ASL, and 40kw in my direction for the ABCs, I guess it’s no surprise that they are 24/7 here.

Also helps that I am 140 M ASL with an excellent LOS to the south.


#14

You probably could say it’s LAP is centred around Morriset, but the dead centre of the LAP is actually between Silverwater & the tip of Point Wolstoncroft.

The Southern edge of the LAP doesn’t include Blue Haven, San Remo, Buff Point, Budgewoi, or Halekulani.

The Western edge of the LAP covers Cooranbong/Avondale, but not much further West.

The Northern Edge of the LAP comes up to cover Jewels on the coast, across Belmont North/Floraville, to Tingira Drive between Valentine & Eleebana, & crosses the lake covering Toronto but not Fennel Bay or Bolton Point.

107.3-2SER (Sydney) RDS
107.7-2GGO (Gosford) RDS
107.9-2ICE (Lithgow) / 2TCBL (Sydney)

I have excellent line of site to the north and west, but not so good to the south, this is why I can null out Vox and 2ST to receive Triple M Newcastle and Hit 106.9.

Also tropo from the north is so much better then any other direction due to my LOS.


#19

Good list!

Does 2OOO have RDS now?


#20

Not yet…
Must have been a typo.
