Newstalk ZB, Timaru 1152

Timaru on New Zealand's South Island is quite a distance from Kongsfjord in Arctic Norway, but nevertheless the signals of Newstalk ZB reached KONG17 from Timaru on 1152 kHz on 18 October 2007. Just as the Japanese station kept quiet for a few seconds, waiting for their time signal at 1300 UTC, the New Zealand station faded up and gave a clear ID:“Your news leader - Newstalk ZB”. Magic!
Thanks to Peter Everatt for confirming the reception of Newstalk ZB on 1152 kHz.
