Australian stations kicked into high gear at the plunging Rockwork cliff this morning as 558-6WA in Wagin, Western Australia managed a pretty decent signal on a new-design 8 inch (20cm) FSL antennas (design photo attached) at 1328 UTC.

The ABC "Nightlife" program features the female host Indira Naidoo interviewing a lady named Karen concerning the gold mine riots in New South Wales in 1861, with the full 4 hour Podcast (very temporarily) posted at

The phrase "November of 1860" is spoken by the interviewee Karen at 1:52 in the radio recording of 6WA posted at
The same "November of 1860" phrase is spoken by Karen at :59 in the ABC Podcast segment (at somewhat stronger strength) posted at

For those needing to use the ABC website to confirm an Australian reception, you should be aware that ABC has drastically reduced the time that these Podcasts are posted, so you need to track them down ASAP!

73 and Good DX,
