ARDS 5050 kHz
ARDS (Aboriginal Resource and Development Services Inc), Australia, launched in July 2006 a 1 kW shortwave transmitter on 5050 kHz. But it was broken during starting phase. They have been waiting correcting actions based on the guarantee from the manufacture company. In the meanwhile, an old 400 Watt transmitter from Air Services Australia (Civil Aviation) has been used. It has earlier been used as 1000 Watt SSB -utility transmitter. The station has a directional antenne towards East. The station is not interested in reception reports outside Australia.
