More Australian MW stations have permanently switched off. This opens up more clear frequencies for Australian DXers.
I hope they switch off my local 1539 KHz Rete Italia Sydney transmitter. This channel has been blocked for years..
The following Rete Italia network MW stations have permanently closed:
1620 Gold Coast.
1629 Mt Gambier.
Reports indicate that new Australia car tuners no longer include AM. Only FM, and high VHF Digital.
999 KHz 2ST Nowra and 1134 2AD Armidale are planning to switch off and move to FM.
PS: This web page list is older, hence some more stations have switched off since then. The above list has been confirmed by DXers.
