Bay Islands Radio, QUEENSLAND – 5045 kHz

On 12th November 2021 I tuned into Bay Islands Radio on 5045 kHz. This was the second time that I have listened to this station which broadcasts from MacLeay Island in Queensland.

Macleay Island is an island in Moreton Bay, South East Queensland, Australia.  second largest of the four Bay Islands, situated 30km from Brisbane in the Moreton Bay Marine Park at the southern end of Moreton Bay.

The overall reception of Bay Islands Radio was fair. The signal strength was good but I was experiencing interference from adjacent stations – All India Radio on 5040 kHz and Beibu Bay Radio on 5050 kHz. I tuned in at 1251 UTC and by 1309 UTC the station had almost been totally wiped out by the interference.


Below is a video of my reception of Bay Islands Radio.
