Australian DGPS terminated July 2020.
« on: July 22, 2020, 2006 UTC »
In case any of the avid DGPS chasers are wondering where the Australian signals are:

"As of the 01st of July 2020 AMSA wish to advise that the 16 Australian DGPS stations in the 285-325KHz allocation will be decomissioned."

Personally, I will not miss them as it makes the band much clearer now to look for further aviation NDB beacons... ;)
Trundle, NSW.

Grid Square:  QF37ub

Yaesu FT-1000D, Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, 27MHz 1/2 wave CB antenna converted to 21MHz & a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

Australian DGPS was always on my "hope to catch" list. Oh well. There's still Europe, which does come in here during the winter.
