AUSTRALIA 6AG Perth WA - June 1928



A rare 1928 QSL card from the amateur experimental shortwave broadcasting station 6AG Perth Western Australia, operated by Wally Coxon. 

In 1928 the shortwave transmitter was co-sited with the mediumwave unit of 6WF on the rooftop of the Westralian Farmers building, located in downtown Perth. 

Operating on 33 metres with just 150 watts, the station would have been a memorable catch and an impressive dx achievement!
