DRM service in 49 mb from Melbourne

A DRM service  operates from Broadmeadows, in Melbourne's west, from the Bureau of Meteorology.
It runs 1 kw into an omni-directional antenna, using a nominal centre frequency of 5960, with a high take-up angle, 24 hrs.
It carries text messages about climatic events affecting Australia, from the Jornaline and other services.
The licence was reissued in October 2013 by ACMA, under the "Scientific" category.
The thing puts out wideband digital hash from 5950 to 5970 all day and night, as observed here in Melbourne's east, and it's also been received in the eastern States and in NZ.
The licence conditions state that "No interference shall be caused to any Radiocommunication station or service and no protection from interference by such stations or services shall be afforded".
A second channel has also  been registered, 13750, but that's not operational at the moment..
The licence details are here:
