Reception of 4KZ in Innisfail, Queensland

Last Friday night (8th October 2021) I decided to do some broadcast short wave listening. I used the Tecsun S-2000 and a Tecsun long wire which was only a few few off the ground.

The first station I logged was 4KZ in Innisfail in Far North Queensland on 5055 kHz on the 60m band short wave.

Located in Innisfail since 1967, Radio 4KZ covers the lush tropical coast of Far North Queensland from Townsville in the south to Cairns city in the north. It plays a variety of music.
