Both transmitters were used to broadcast the national broadcast of Radio
Patria between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. in the evening. In the night hours,
it was supplemented by the broadcasting of the RTVS Radio Devin program
service. Medium wave radio broadcasting accompanied its listeners for
a long time - from 1926 to the present day. Medium wave broadcasting was


gradually replaced by FM broadcasting in the VHF band and listeners on
medium waves gradually decreased. Today, Slovak Radio is expanding its
coverage in the T-DAB+ digital broadcasting standard in band III."

There are links on the webpage to a long timeline on the history of broad-
casting in Czechoslovakia and Slovakia with photos and audio and article
on their DAB+ history and expansion at the link for those interested, both
translate well to English.

The correct frequency is 702 kHz, not 720 as stated on the website.

Subject: [HCDX] CHRISTMAS EVE DX TEST: WCGA 1100 Woodbine, Georgia

The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the National Radio Club and International Radio Club of America is pleased to announce a Christmas Eve DX Test for WCGA 1100 in Woodbine, Georgia.

Station owner Wesley Cox explained, “WCGA is a daytime-only station that broadcasts a news/talk format to the Georgia coast at 10,000 watts. We sign off at sundown to protect WTAM in Cleveland, Ohio. But we need to do some maintenance on our Harris DX-10 transmitter and the audio chain, so we thought, let’s do it on Christmas Eve.”

The station will broadcast test tones, Morse Code identifications, long-duration 1 kHz test tones, and Christmas music produced using a modular synthesizer. The testing will begin at 12:01 AM Eastern Time (05:01 UTC) on Saturday morning, December 24th.

The test can be received at great distances, perhaps even in Europe and Scandanavia. Cox welcomes reception reports from faraway listeners, “We’re especially interested in hearing reports about the audio coming from the station, noting any distortion or modulation issues.”

Listeners who hear the test are asked to submit reception reports to the CPC, who will handle the station's reception reports. Please follow the requirements below:

Send an email of your report, along with a two-minute long recording of your reception in .MP3 or .WAV format to:

dx@highnoonfilm.com <mailto:dx@highnoonfilm.com>

The email should include the following:

John Doe, W4DOE

Anytown, AL 35112 |
USA |

johndoe@yephoo.com <mailto:johndoe@yephoo.com> | Email Address of DXer

Member of both IRCA & NRC | Please note your membership in our clubs.

Drake R8B with a 40’ longwire | Information about the equipment used to receive the station.

Remarks | Comments about the station’s audio, interference, frequency stability, or
other information you’d like to share.

WCGA.mp3 | Attach a copy of the audio you received.

All emails should be formatted exactly as above. Start with your contact information, and be sure to include the email where you want the QSL emailed.

Reception reports must be received within the next 30 days. The use of remote SDRs to receive the test is discouraged unless it is a receiver location that you have built and maintained specifically for DXing. If a remote SDR is used, you must disclose the location of the receiver and the name of the owner, if known. The remote receiver must be located at least 500 miles from WCGA.

One QSL per DXer.

The CPC would like to thank station owners Wesley and De Cox, along with everyone at Cox Broadcast Group, Inc for working with the DXing community to coordinate the station maintenance. “We wanted to give something back to hobbyists who love radio as we do. It’s also a great way to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Something that gets lost too often in all the hustle of the season. We hope our local listeners will enjoy it too.”

The station will be on the air testing for two hours, using their daytime power and pattern. Their antenna is a six-wire Ron Knott folded unipolar. Don’t miss this chance to hear a rare daytime-only station and put a new one in the logbook.
