Also,
the Gladstone (QLD) area is now covered by YGLA, I know the person feeding that one personally, and I spoke to him about it face to face on Tuesday evening, when I was up there.

It's interesting also to see that sometimes there is propagation and ducting that assists 1090 MHz aircraft DX, and the operator of YGLA said that he observed one report from a China Airlines aircraft fying Auckland to Brisbane, as it climbed through about 20,000ft on departure from Auckland, everything checked out, and he observed the same aircraft as it came within range of Brisbane's receiver.

Pretty much the whole QLD coast is covered now from the NSW border to CNS.
