We have now abandoned Crossband Radio and have official Shortwave Broadcast licences in the 120meter and 60meter bands on 2310Khz and 4835Khz
under the name of Shortwave Australia.

HOW NOT TO LISTEN IN.
VHF. 147.475 Mhz fm.
If you reside within about 100Km from Melbourne you should
be able to receive the VHF service on any scanner or two meter transceiver
using just an simple antenna or hand held equipment. For a gain antenna
or elevated installation the range will be much increased.
ONE SIXTY METERS. 1868 Khz NBFM.
It's more fun to listen on one sixty but some people do have
trouble with television line buzz or mains ference not to mention computers
and electrical equipment. An out door antenna or better still a directional
loop can often solve the problem. If we are transmitting on FM although better for local areas it may be very distorted
for listeners via skywave so the 80 meter service may be better. To receive FM on an AM radio tune off the carrier a
bit till the audio becomes least distorted, should work ok except radios with very narrow and or steep filters.
ground wave should extend over the metro area and beyond but there is a
zone between 50 to 150 Km where the signals are often very week due to
the fact that the ground wave has dissipated and the sky wave is non existent
or has heavy fading. Depending on conditions the skywave reception may
be quite good interstate.

broadcast radios to receive one sixty meters.
EIGHTY METERS 3.670 Mhz AM.
This service for the inland and the islands should
have coverage over most of Australia and the near pacific if conditions
are good and fills in gaps that 160 misses like between the night time skywave and groundwave zones.
Over the horizon radar is a big problem now but nothing I can do about it,if it is extra bad I may move somewhere
else in the band.
