Local sunset is about 0050UT here, and at 0010UT there are (weak)
carriers being heard from the usual British suspects...1215, 1089,
1053, See what, if anything, develops.

Thursday, January 18 2018

IRCA
MM = Monday Mornings when stations used to s/off and do âtesting.â Back in the day you never knew exactly what youâd find - listen for test tones and hope that an ID came. Itâs also the time CPCs were often scheduled. CPC = courtesy program committee who would coordinate with broadcasters to do tests for MW clubs or at least give advance notice of their PoP - proof of performance that used to be carried out on MMs.

Great fun!

IRCA
MM = "Monday Morning", which back in the day meant that many stations which otherwise ran 24/7 had a silent period ( SP ) of anywhere from 2 to 6 hours local time. That opened up the frequencies for receptiojns from farther west.
