Good morning.

Just completed a bandscan of frequencies that have been occupied by the TAB’s Trackside network in NZ.  They announced on 9 April that broadcasts would cease at midnight last night and this morning (1900 UTC) I found their frequencies occupied as follows:


549   Only Newstalk ZB Nelson (ex Sport), Rhema Kaitaia and an Aussie

711    Open Carrier

828    Open Carrier

873    Newstalk ZB Ashburton and Open Carrier

954    Open Carrier with 2UE Sydney through it. No sign of Coast Dunedin

990    Apna Auckland all alone

1071  RNZ National Masterton all alone

1206  2 Aussies here

1224  2 Aussies here

1242  1XX Whakatane strong, unid carrier

1260  Open Carrier and an Aussie

1476  Open Carrier

1485  Open Carrier and possible Aussie

1548  Coast Palmerston North and an Open Carrier.

Hopefully the next step is for a tech to visit the Trackside transmitters and power them down, opening up some new DX opportunities in NZ and Australia!
