Does any one know if they are still any MW station in PNG on air?  Cannot get much out of NBC of PNG web site which is out of date.  Thanks.

NBC of PNG has gone mostly to FM radio these days, I think Port Moresby was the last MW station, haven't heard it for over 18 months so it probably too has gone.  Also NBC of PNG on the 3MHz band is being fazed out also.
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.

My first MW loop based on instructions from Radio Nederlands didn't do beans on MW, but it killed on those PNG stations on 90 meters. I miss them these days.

I don't know how screwed that loop up, but I'm sure glad I did.
