- Thread-topic: [NRC-AM] The Almost No Chicago Night
According to http://www.timegenie.com/city.time/usotz and several other sites, Kotzebue is UTC -9. As I write this it's 11:10am Central time and 8:10am in Kotzebue. So the test should be 4:00 to 4:30am Eastern tomorrow morning.

PLEASE CORRECT ANY ERRORS ... AND CONSIDER THIS THE ***ALMOST FINAL WORD*** ON TONIGHT'S SCHEDULED BIG CHICAGO OFF-AIR EVENT
670 WSCR, 720 WGN and 780 WBBM, all in Chicago, are scheduled to go off-air this coming Saturday morning (late tonight), from 2-5am CST.
A few additional DX opportunities have been scheduled or will be otherwise available in light of this:
Scott Fybush reports he has confirmed with 670 KBOI in Boise ID that it will do some limited testing during the Chicago silent period. KBOI will maintain regular programming but will drop in Morse code IDs at about 1:08 MST (3:08 EST) and 1:38 MST (3:38 EST), using 50 kW ND ***ONLY*** during the code IDs. I strongly recommend monitoring 670 a few minutes before and after each of these times. No QSL info as of yet.
Paul Walker reports KOTZ 720 Kotzebue Alaska will test for 30 minutes during the off-air period. The test will consist of sweep tones, Morse code, sound effects and other announcements and is scheduled for 0000-0030 LOCAL TIME. Kotzebue is rather close to Russia. I have not yet determined its time zone. Alaska has several, I believe.
QSL info for KOTZ: Please include location, receiver, antennae as well as a log of what you heard and when, and comments on signal quality. Chief Engineer Pierre Lonewolf is particularly interested in the results from this skywave skip as KOTZ is evaluating its signal, and a favor deserves a favour in return. Send a SASE with your report to:
