Radio New Zealand – 5980 kHz

My last station logged for Saturday 9th October 2021 was Radio New Zealand on 5980 kHz on the 49m band on shortwave.

Radio New Zealand, known as Radio NZ or RNZ, is New Zealand’s public service radio broadcaster. It was established under the Radio new Zealand Act 1995.

The headquarters of Radio New Zealand is located in Radio New Zealand House in Wellington.

Radio NZ was coming through very nicely with an excellent signal and no interference from adjacent stations. There was slight noise on the band (static crashes) and slight fading of the signal.


Below is a short video of my reception of Radio New Zealand.
