** AUSTRALIA. 5055, Radio 4KZ, 1310-1342, Dec 28. Always best in USB, due to BBR (China) QRM on 5050; pop songs The Lovin' Spoonful - "Summer In The City," Tony Orlando - "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'round ol' Oak Tree," etc.; some commercial announcements; still with some SSB chatter in Spanish which blocks 4KZ reception.
Dec 30 - Best reception so far; 1442 alert regarding the New South Walespolice investigating the disappearance of an 11 year old boy from Shalvey; taken from a backyard at Sedgeman Crescent, Shalvey, about 7:30; believed to be traveling to Queensland with his natural mother in a 2006 Hyundai Elantra with New South Wales registration AN02YL; semi-readable. Very respectable reception, especially if still 500w.
