ABC's decision to end shortwave radio service 'could be life threatening' ranger says


The ABC announced this week its three HF shortwave radio transmitters at Katherine, Tennant Creek and Roe Creek (Alice Springs), would be switched off on January 31, 2017. 

ABC Radio will continue to broadcast on FM and AM bands, via the viewer access satellite television (VAST) service, streaming online and via the mobile phone application. 

Mark Crocombe from the Thamarrurr Rangers, in the remote community of Wadeye, said the rangers spent days and sometimes weeks at a time away in the bush and out on sea patrols. 

He said the group relied on the ABC's shortwave radio for weather reports and emergency information. 

"Otherwise you have to call back to the base on the HF radio to ask people [there], but then you can't listen to the report yourself, you are relying on someone else's second-hand report," Mr Crocombe said. 

Mr Crocombe said on previous bush trips he had received warnings of cyclones via the ABC's shortwave service, without which he would not have had any notice. 

"Sure, it is expensive to keep the shortwave radio service going, but during cyclones, for the bush camps and people on boats, that is their only way of getting the weather reports," he said. 

"It could be life threatening, if you are out and you don't know a cyclone is coming." 

Mr Crocombe said the VAST service did not work during cloudy weather, especially during monsoons and cyclones. 

"The VAST satellite dish is fixed to your house, we are working in the field, and when we are on the boats we are not in mobile phone range, so applications and VAST do not work in the bush," he said. 

In response to Mr Crocombe's concerns, a spokesperson for the ABC said "In emergencies, the ABC works very hard to ensure that its services remain available through a range of FM broadcasts and re-broadcast arrangements in the NT. 

"Cyclone activity is usually coastal in nature, in which case users are covered by FM, Maritime distress frequencies, and the ABC's close working relationship with northern Indigenous broadcasters — particularly in times of emergency broadcasting," the statement read. 

"The BOM provides forecasts and warnings in HF on the hour, every hour. The Emergency Flying Doctor service also broadcasts in HF." 

Cattleman's Association says ABC decision ignores people in the bush 

The national broadcaster said in a statement on Tuesday the move was in line with its "commitment to dispense with outdated technology and to expand its digital content offerings." 

But the announcement was met with anger by the Northern Territory Cattleman's Association. 

President Tom Stockwell, who lives on Sunday Creek Station with no access to AM or FM radio or mobile phone coverage, said the ABC's decision to focus on digital transmission ignored people in the bush. 

"It affects a big area of Australia and it affects those people that are remote from other forms of communication that rely on radio network," he said. 


"The ABC argument that it's a 100-year-old technology doesn't stack up. Electricity is 100-years-old — is the ABC going to get rid of electricity as well? 

"Anybody who's remote and away from a satellite dish won't get local radio, won't get emergency radio, won't get emergency messages and they're going to use the money to put in another digital platform for crying out loud. 

"It's just the most selfish, ridiculous decision I've ever heard," Mr Stockwell said. 

Head of ABC Radio strategy Jeremy Millar defended the broadcaster's decision while admitting he was unsure about the size of the shortwave audience in the Northern Territory. 

"[It is] very hard to identify audiences in remote areas that are specifically hinged on these services. 

"Our estimates are that they are fairly low given the VAST service is available across the Northern Territory," Mr Miller said. 

"The downside is that VAST is a technology which is best working in a stationary environment, at home, a business or a place of work and not necessarily mobile. 

"But a number of communities have a landed service which means they receive VAST off the satellite and then can rebroadcast their programs on a low-powered FM in their market. 

"That landed VAST service has certainly plugged a lot of gaps in terms of geographic coverage." 

Mr Millar would not reveal how much the ABC would save by ending the service. 

More information on the cessation of the ABC's shortwave service can be found on the website.

Radio Caroline wants 1kW to cover East Anglia


Radio Caroline has asked Ofcom for permission to crank up a 1 kilowatt transmitter as part of its community radio application.

Most community radio stations operate at around 50 watts, covering an area of around 5 kilometres, but Caroline boss Peter Moore has requested no less than 1000 watts to reach its community of interest base across East Anglia. It proposes to cover an area bounded by Ipswich in the South, Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket in the West, Saxmundham to the East and Diss to the North.

In the application, Peter Moore says: “We would however seek permission to operate at a considerably higher power level outside the “typical” limits suggested. Radio Caroline, is not a traditional community radio station seeking to serve a small geographical “community of place”. As set out elsewhere in this application, Radio Caroline can best be described as a “community of interest” station, with potential listeners spread throughout East Anglia. This means that our coverage requirements are therefore atypical.”

The station has applied for a licence in Suffolk but proposes to broadcast most of the programmes from Kent, due to better internet connectivity, and from the Ross Revenge ship using 4G. Programming would be original for 20 hours per day and broadcast only in English.

If awarded a licence, the station could be on-air in time for the 50th anniversary of the Marine Offenses Act, on 14th August 2017.

AM Rock, another applicant for an AM community radio licence, has also requested an extended 20+ km radius to broadcast Rock, Blues, Folk and Jazz Music across East Kent

Propagation News – 11 December 2016

This past week had been reasonably settled, geomagnetically, with the K-index generally being between zero and three at the beginning of the week. The noon-time critical frequency as measured by the Chilton ionosonde near Harwell on Tuesday was just over 6MHz, which meant 40m often struggled for contacts close in around the UK, but 15 metres was potentially open to DX at times. The critical frequency climbed higher during Tuesday afternoon, which meant that 12 metres may have been open. This also confirms that noon doesn’t always bring the highest critical frequencies. 

We then had a succession of B-class solar flares on Wednesday. A large recurrent coronal hole moved across the Earth-facing side of the sun and became geo-effective from December 7th. 

Enhanced geomagnetic activity, including minor (G1) storm conditions then occurred on Thursday when a high-speed solar wind stream passed Earth. Don’t forget you can get a short pre-event enhancement just as the plasma hits and the K-index rises, but the prognosis for HF is then not good if we get prolonged storming. 

NOAA predicts that the coronal hole effects will diminish after the weekend, leaving a more settled ionosphere for the rest of the week. Conditions may become more unsettled again from around December the 19th. 

So Monday to Saturday next week may be the best times for working DX on the HF bands, but don’t forget to check the low bands for DX during late afternoon and through the hours of darkness as we are at an optimum time as we near the Winter solstice. 

VHF and up propagation news: 

This week sees one of the biggest meteor showers of the year. The peak of the Geminids is expected on Wednesday morning at around 0020UTC, with a zenithal hourly rate of around 120. All the low VHF bands will be affected, with EME-capable stations on 70cm also able to make meteor scatter QSOs. 

There seems to be a common theme in the weather models for the coming week, which is that there is likely to be high pressure nearby to the south and east of Britain, over the continent. A series of low pressure systems will continue to pass by the north-west of the country with cloud, rain and periods of stronger winds. This means that any tropo conditions are likely to be confined to the southern and eastern half of Britain, closer to the high pressure over the continent, which is the direction to look for any tropo DX during the next week. 

The latter part of the week will probably see a stronger development of high pressure over the south of Britain, maintaining the tropo options into the following weekend. 

Low losses and high declination this week make it a good one for EME contacts. E44QX should be QRV on the GHz bands from Jericho until Wednesday.
