[HCDX] Aussie 1278 3AW to move
Australian talk station 1278 3AW (Melbourne Victoria) is about to do a
swap in frequency with Magic 693 (3EE) On May 1st 2006 3AW will move to
693 kHz. Their current transmitter location at Lower Plenty has been a
problem for years with poor reception around Melbourne and Victoria.
Sister station Magic 693 (Part of Southern Cross Network) will do a
straight swap and use 1278 Khz. 693 kHz out of Hoppers Crossing in
Melbourne's west propagates well on the lower part of the band. It is
interesting that 3AW will be next door to ABC 774 which is its main talk
rival in Melbourne.
