The Cross - Pohnpei - update

Religious broadcaster, "The Cross", from Pohnpei, on 4755, is now running
24-hrs, simulcasting the FM service on 88.5

Here in Melbourne, really good signals from as early as 0700, right through
our night to fade-out at around 1935.

The SW facility has recently been reactivated and upgraded with the
commissioning of a new antenna and feeder.

Looking at postings in hobby news groups worldwide, reception has been
widely reported in the Americas in the span from around 0605 to 1300, even
on the East Coast!

I'd be interested in knowing what reception is like at your location,
especially in Europe.

Pohnpei is relatively close to northern Australia, sitting in the UTC+11
time zone, not far from Papua New Guinea.

Regards from Melbourne!
