WXHL DX test - update!

WXHL DX test - update!

Post by ircamem.. » Wed, 25 Feb 2004 06:15:23

An update to my earlier message about the WXHL test...

DXer Les Rayburn has volunteered to help with responding to QSL
reports for the test (MANY, MANY THANKS!!) *AND* he got a .wav file of
WXHL's Morse ID to the engineer, so there will be code used in the
test!

So, to repeat:

Monday, March 29, 2004 - WXHL-1550, Elkton, MD will conduct a DX test
from 12:01 - 1am EST.

The test will consist of numerous voice IDs, code IDs, and
forgotten/rare 70's and 80's Top 40 music and a few test tones.
Currently, the engineer is uncertain of just what power the test will
be run at; the station is normally 1000/1 w U3.

The station prefers that reception reports be e-mailed; send them to:


The engineer (Dan Oetting) says he will respond to reception reports
via e-mail but not via snail mail. However, in your e-mail, please CC:

reception reports with a special QSL card, printed just for the test.
You can send your reports to Les at:

Les Rayburn
High Noon Film
100 Centerview Drive
Suite 111
Birmingham, AL 35216

Also, if you include your postal mailing address with your e-mail to
Les, he will send you a card as well. PLEASE don't forget to include
return postage!!

And remember, whether you hear the test or not, if you try for the
test, please drop the station a note thanking them for running the
test - and let me know about your results, too!

Thanks!

Lynn.

Dear IRCAMEMBER,
Thanks for your post. Pass on my appreciation of their efforts to get their
station on the air. It does seem to be a lot of work. Let us know how the
test went, and what response you got. Maximus.
