Ultralight DXing: Long Wave Radio - Launceston, Tasmania


Over the past week I have been spending some time listening to and searching the long wave band for signals using my Tecsun PL-380 ultralight radio.

From my location here in Launceston, Tasmania I have been checking the licensed frequencies off the ACMA database and also searching the whole band. I have found that around sunset (6pm) local time is the best time to hear these signals.

Tasmanian stations I have logged:
243kHz - Airservices NDB Site opp Railway Station Evandale Rd WESTERN JUNCTION
281kHz - Airservices NDB Site Devonport Airport DEVONPORT
296kHz - Palana Road 1km South East of Airport WHITEMARK
302kHz - Airservices NDB Site Reservoir Drive WYNYARD
374kHz - Tea Tree Road TEA TREE

While searching the band I have found I am also able to easily / regularly hear:
350kHz - Defence NDB Site RAAF Base EAST SALE

The signal on this frequency is very strong and is a very easy copy day and night.
