2007/04/14 12:00 5995 Radio Australia has been noted on this frequency for the last few days in DRM mode from 12:00-14:00 UTC. Site is presumed to be Brandon (North Queensland), but unconfirmed, as are target and power. They've been using 23.4k AAC+ mono audio which is too high for any decoding here given strong interference from both 5990 & 6000 kHz. Audio recording is in AM mode as the service switches from AM to DRM. Ogg   view
