ONLY HOURS UNTIL THE DUAL DX TEST 2022-- WMST 1150 & WWKY 990 THIS SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 10 MIDNIGHT-2AM EST 040   
Sunday, April 10 2022

HCDX


UPDATE— SEE NOTE ON OUTPUT POWER LEVELS

The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the International Radio Club of American (IRCA) and the National Radio Club (NRC) are pleased to announce the 2022 “Dual Test” from the Bluegrass State! Stay up late with us on Saturday night/Sunday morning as WWKY 990 in Winchester, KY and WMST 1150 in Mount Sterling, KY will both be conducting maintenance tests for two full hours.

The test starts at midnight, Sunday morning April 10th (0400 UTC) and lasts until 2 AM EST (0600 UTC). Both stations will run at their daytime power and pattern. That’s 2,500 watts for WMST and 1,000 watts for WWKY. Snagging this dynamic duo will be a challenge. To help make it easier, the station is broadcasting some of the best DX test material available.

The test will consist mostly of sweep tones, Morse code at 20WPM & 12 WPM (1 kHz), 1kHz long tones, and proven sound effects to cut through the noise. We’ve also uncovered some vintage jingles from both stations that they’ll mix in for even more fun.

CREDITS

This springtime DX test is a direct result of the outreach efforts of Harry Dence and the generosity of Hays McMakin of Gateway Radio Works, Inc. who own both stations. Scheduling this test around high school basketball and March madness means that it has literally been months in the making. Kudos to our all-volunteer CPC team as well!

Thank you Hays McMakin!

QSL INFORMATION

The usual rules for a CPC-scheduled test apply:

Email reception reports to les@highnoonfilm.com <mailto:les@highnoonfilm.com>
Reception reports must be received within 30 days (May 10, 2022)
QSLs for all DX Tests from the 2021-2022 will be answered when the season is over. Be patient. (Yes, this includes KJJR and KQKD)
Reception reports must include a recording of no more than two minutes in length. .MP3, .WAV or .MP4 video accepted.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

If you think a late-season dual test is unusual, wait till you hear what is coming next. We have arranged yet another test
for this Spring. We can’t reveal it yet, but it’s a rarely-heard daytime-only station on the East Coast. And this same station will provide
even more goodies next Winter!

SEE YOU IN JUST A FEW HOURS! LATE NIGHT SATURDAY/EARLY SUNDAY FOR THE DUAL DX TEST!


73,
