In recent times a number of operators within and outside Australia have reported interference on 7190 kHz between 1500UTC and 1535UTC.
The source of this interference was traced to an Australian organisation, Reach Beyond Australia, from their global transmission complex in Kununurra, Western Australia.
The WIA has been in contact with Reach Beyond and the ACMA. The organisation has voluntarily elected to cease their programming on 7190 kHz whilst the ACMA assesses this situation.
The WIA would like to thank the members of Reach Beyond for their open dialog and working in the spirit of cooperation to rapidly mitigate the impact of this issue.
The WIA will update when further information comes to hand
