Although its medium-wave and short-wave transmitters and antennas are located east of Taupo in the central North Island of New Zealand, Taupo Radio ZLM is actually operated from Wellington by Maritime New Zealand.

ZLM also monitors Marine VHF channel 16 via 30 remote stations around New Zealand, including the Chatham Islands.
