If your running a 5/8 and 50w what you will find is that it runs out around 
Parilla before you get to Pinnaroo.. I guess your going to Ouyen to get to 
Swan Hill through . I think I remember some sort of coverage on the way 
across to Manangatang but it was patchy. After that I dont think I can speak 
accurately about coverage in the Riverina really.

So there is basically a big hole either side of the VK5/3 border on the 
Mallee highway for some 100kms or more considering its 100kms from Pinaroo 
to Ouyen to start with.
