With many thanks to DX League member David Kaio, updated listings of New Zealand FM and AM stations have been uploaded to radiodx.com
In each case there is a listing in frequency order and a separate listing in regional order.
These lists are derived from the station licences issued by MBIE and are far more detailed than the lists we have produced previously. All current licences are included, so if a station is not currently on air (eg Trackside network frequencies) the Programme name is left empty.
Likewise for frequencies offered at auction that have not yet been won, or licences purchased but yet to commence operation.
The FM listings include LPFM relays operated by full-time public and commercial operators, but not other local LPFM stations.
The powers listed are derived from EIRP – the effective maximum power radiated from the antenna, allowing for antenna efficiency and any gain from antenna design or directionality. In the case of AM stations this can be different to the transmitter power as published elsewhere.
So, you are now equipped for the upcoming FM DX season – please report any long distance or unusual FM receptions over the summer. And if you have any updates to these lists, please also let us know in the Comments box below.
