Subject: [Rfaqsl] Latest QSL news from RFA
To: qsl <qsl@rfa.org>

Dear friends,

Just a few short notes from all of us at RFA:

1. We removed the map, with pins, from our Automated Reception Report
System (ARRS) at http://techweb.rfa.org so we can eventually update it.

That page needed an update for a while and we're currently looking at what
Google, Amazon Web Services, and others may provide.

There is no target date yet but we will let you know when we are ready to
add the map feature back to RFA's ARRS.

2. The pandemic continues to hamper our ability to confirm reception
reports quickly. Instead of days or weeks, it now takes months before we
get to most RRs. Please be patient but also feel free to write us at
qsl@rfa.org to follow up on any RFA reception reports you've sent, but have
gone months without hearing from us.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

You received this email because you expressed interest in RFA's QSL cards.
Please let us know if you prefer to be removed from our distribution list.

Best wishes; stay healthy. 73. aj

WNJC 1360 July DX Tests-- UPDATE--NEW QSL INFO  View Printable Version 
Saturday, July 03 2021


The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the NRC & IRCA is pleased to announce that WNJC 1360 kHz in Washington Township, New Jersey will be conducting maintenance tests on their automation systems and other equipment during the summer, resulting in some opportunities for DX’ers to log this station.

Chief Engineer Duke Hamann sent the following notice regarding the summer schedule for July including a special Independence Day test.


July 1st through 7th. Midnight EDT (0400 UTC) to 5 AM EDT (0900 UTC) “Hybrid” DX Test. Test will be daytime power, 3kw in their daytime pattern. [ SHOWN ABOVE ]

The transmitter’s rated output is 5kW but currently is limited to 3kW.

Test material will be limited to CW only at 800 hz, 900 hz, and 1,000 hz along with simultaneous transmission of FT-8 computer mode transmissions.

FT8 is used by amateur radio operators to communicate over long distances at very low power levels. Receiving it is even easier, and can literally be done by putting a microphone from your computer close to your receiver’s speaker. Using FT8 WNJC was received nationwide and in several countries last year. How to get started, try these tutorials or search Google for “Getting Started in FT8.”

July 4th Special Test. On July 4th WNJC will conduct a special Independence Day event starting at 8 PM EDT (00:00 UTC) until 6 AM EDT (1000 UTC).

Test material will consist of voice ID’s, jingles, Morse Code IDs, sweep tones, along with special patriotic music and sound effects.

To assist in keeping DX’ers informed of last minute changes and to better track receptions of the station during it’s maintenance, CE Hamann has created a Facebook group:

WNJC DX Test Facebook Group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/wnjc1360dx <https://www.facebook.com/groups/wnjc1360dx>


QSL’s for the June tests and July 1-7 Tests will be handled by the Courtesy Program Committee of the NRC/IRCA. Our QSL requirements are very specific:

All requests must be submitted via e-mail to: les@highnoonfilm.com <mailto:les@highnoonfilm.com>
QSL requests must include a recording of the best two minutes of your reception in either .MP3, .WAV, or .MP4 video. No written reports will be accepted for verification.
Requests must be received by August 1st.
Only one QSL per DX’er regardless of how many times you receive the test (s).
If you use a remote SDR or receiver to log the test, we will honor only one QSL per DX’er. No multiple QSL requests. You must clearly state the location of the receiver that you used to receive the station.

The July 4th Special Test QSL requests will be processed directly by John “Duke” Hamann, Chief Engineer of WNJC. The requirements are:

All requests must be submitted via e-mail to: kc2dux@duxpond.com <mailto:kc2dux@duxpond.com>. Please include WNJC 4th DX Test in the subject line of the e-mail.
Only one QSL per DX’er. You may apply for the July 4th Special QSL even if you have already received the test earlier.
