(The above frequency of 475KHz is a designated "Experimental Licence" frequency in Australia and New Zealand.)

Note: I tend not to bother with NDB's under 2,000kms as I am a "Distance Chaser" so many of the regular beacons heard under the 2,000km benchmark are not recorded unless a new logging is found in that arena.
