Hello All -
 I'm wondering if it is still possible to listen to Radio Australia like I used to in the mornings here in Washington state? I remember listening to them on 7240 in the mornings and they had a very good signal. Interesting programs and features. However, they seem to have moved somewhere and the only frequency I could find them on at the same hour was 9,580 and it was just pop music. Does anyone hear them broadcasting the regular programs and where is that? I read on a link about cutbacks, etc.

Regards,
Bruce

I also heard pop music on 9580 khz this morning, first time I'd tuned into R. Australia for a long time.

I think they were relaying a Triple J alt-pop music program.

On Radio Australia's website there's a PDF of their program schedule. They've stopped broadcasting on SW to Asia but still broadcast to the Pacific.

Probably the info is no different than that on the link that OnAir posted.

I'm afraid it's the height of summer down here and we've all gone to our summer schedules. Try the higher frequency bands, 17840 and 15240 kHz. RNZ is doing it too on those higher bands, 11725 and 11690kHz.

Will do, although I am currently listening to Radio Australia at 9am Pacific Time on 9580 with a decent signal. Radio New Zealand is also coming in very well on 9700. Thanks for the replies and good listening!
