"SPRING INTO DX" TEST 2023-- WMST 1150 & WWKY 990 THIS SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 25 00:01 AM-2AM EDT 0400-0600 U  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 21 2023


The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the International Radio Club of American (IRCA) and the National Radio Club (NRC) are pleased to announce the 2023 “Spring into DX” tests 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 one minute after midnight 00:01 AM EDT, Sunday morning March 26 (0400 UTC) and lasts until 2 AM EDT (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. The stations also plan to run some “special programming” that is sure to be fun.


This “Spring Into 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. Again, Hays and his team had to work around high school basketball and March Madness to make this test go, so you have our thanks. Kudos to our all-volunteer CPC team as well!

Thank you Hays McMakin!


The usual rules for a CPC-scheduled test apply:

Email reception reports to dx@highnoonfilm.com <mailto:dx@highnoonfilm.com>
Reception reports must be received within 30 days (May 10, 2023)
QSLs for all DX Tests from the 2021-2022 will be answered when the season is over. Be patient.
Reception reports must include a recording of no more than two minutes in length. .MP3, .WAV or .MP4 video accepted.

Strong reception of KNLS Alaska on a variable frequency, just below 5530 kHz
at 1230 UTC March 21 but slowly moving higher, reaching 5530 kHz at 1237 UT
and still shifting upward. ID as "Your New Life Station" around that time.
Can hear this on my own equipment but also on Don Moman's KiwiSDR.
