New Zealand

There is often a positive side to MW transmitters closing, or greatly reducing power. Last evening around 2230 LT during enhanced MW propagation to New Zealand, 909 KHz Napier / Hastings Radio Rhema (5 kW) was noted with modern music, and OM speaker into Sydney. The signal was weak. Not yet known why this gets out poorly into eastern Australia. Most evenings 909 KHz Napier isn’t there on the 26 cm diameter PK loop. The 101 cm side length box loop will be soon tested on 909 KHz.
