Hope yet for ABC HF being restored?

Good news... maybe... if the Labor Party sticks to its promise...

'People who are used to an effective service tend to take its loss badly. So it has been in the NT. Politicians were pursued by the inland listeners wanting a better deal. The matter has culminated with the main opposition Australian Labor Party pledging to restore the HF distribution of ABC within Australia if it wins the forthcoming the federal election.'

Not quite the old Radio Australia but it would still be a bonzer resource for many cruisers in the SW Pacific and SE Asia... even though they may not be the target audience....

When I am 'off the grid' in Patagonia my only news source is the BBC African service from Ascension Island... I don't think I'm their target audience... but I am now an expert on african football results.......
