PAPUA NUEVA GUINEA: NBC National Radio en Port Moresby en 4890 & 6040 kHz

Papua New Guinea
NBC uses 4890 & 6040
for National Elections

NBC National Radio in Port Moresby has re-activated 4890kHz on
shortwave for breaking coverage of the national election results
currently underway across the country. This frequency is additional
to 6040kHz heard at the same time with the same program, which is a
simulcast with Kundu TV. Both transmitters are located at Port
Moresby, although 6040 is nominally licenced to Alotau in Milne Bay.
However, NBC Milne Bay says it is only broadcasting on 3365 and two
FM frequencies.

Am currently listening to NBC Port Moresby 4890 via Sydney Global
Tuners with VG signal.. it's a simulcast with Kundu TV network,
giving phone numbers to call the studio as 325 9382 or 325 0084, or
text SMS 7288. Phone in report from NBC Morobe at 10.52 UTC, late
news started at 11.06 UTC. Chief Electoral Officer is calling on
Returning Officers to abide by the law after many complaints. NBC
swamped with hundreds of texts. Signal deteriorating slightly by
11.12 UTC compared to tune in at 10.40 UTC. So 4890 has been
reactivated, and this broadcast is clearly //6040 which is at poor
quality in comparison. I have maintained for several years that the
higher power NBC Port Moresby tx were still available for use in
special circumstances. Election 2012 is obviously such a
circumstance! Now 11.14 UTC and much harder to copy. 

This is the best opportunity in years to hear PNG NBC shortwave
outlets because of these crucial national elections and coverage. 

If you hear ANY NBC signals this month, please send me details so we
can make sure the WRTH 2013 has accurate coverage. Or, at least, as
accurate as possible. 

Email me: radioheritage@gmail.com with news and notes please. 

Thanks & 73
