Back in Canberra Welcome to Daylight Saving Time

The 2UE signal is loud and clear in Canberra

October 28th, 2007 at 02:00am

Good morning once again John,

I just picked up my battery powered radio for the first time since getting back from Sydney, and noticed that the signal had a bit more static than usual, and then realised that it was still tuned to 2UE. Usually I can faintly hear the 2UE signal fading in and out from Canberra at night, but it is very clear tonight…a bit of static but very clear and not fading at all.

You might be interested to know that 2UE's signal is a good half a second ahead of 2CC.

Welcome to daylight saving!

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

    This night time reception is, of course, due to high angle radiation from the 2UE antenna ‘bouncing off’ the E layer of the Ionosphere.

    Indeed it is John. The conditions must have been exceptionally good though as I haven’t heard the 2UE signal as clearly as that in Canberra for a very long time.
