WNJC 1360 AM DX Tests.
So this week I am switching things up a bit. I going to try to give the inland folks over the pond a better chance to and copy our FT-8 test. I will be starting 2 hours early with the FT-8 DX test at 02:00 UTC 10/17 (10:00pm 10/16 EDT). We will be operating our regular 2 tower, 800 watt nighttime pattern to the SSE. At 04:00 UTC the FT-8 test will conclude and we will conduct the DX audio test continuing on our nighttime pattern. At 0500 UTC I will be switching to our daytime pattern at 5kw using 4 towers directional to SSE with the DX audio test concluding at 0600 UTC. From 0600 – 1000 UTC I will be leaving the transmitter in daytime mode but be playing our normal playlist of 80s – 2010 pop, rock, dance, country and whatever else I grew up listening to and feel like playing. Listen for the sweepers between songs of movie & tv show clips along with our voice-over guy. Reception reports are greatly appreciated and can be emailed to kc2dux@duxpond.com or snail mailed with at least a 4×6 SASE to PO Box 84 Dennisville, NJ 08214. I ordered 250 QSL cards and gave away 122 so far! I don’t want to keep that many LOL! Look forward to having another fun weekend with the DXs out there!

Tune in for more nostalgia with another Radio Caroline North broadcast this weekend 17th-18th October.
You’ll hear all the best music from the 60s – early 90s, plus the chance to win some goodies from our Web Shop, this time kindly sponsored by Alan and Dawn Sharp from Enfield, Middlesex.
Sadly again, due to ‘social distancing’ restrictions, we can’t use our radio-ship Ross Revenge this time, so the broadcast will be land-based.
Listen in on 648 AM in the South and South-East, on 1368 AM in the North and North-West courtesy of our friends at Manx Radio, the Radio Caroline app and around the world online here (via the Manx AM Radio Player).
We’d love to hear from during the broadcast via memories@radiocaroline.co.uk and remember, it’s the only email address that gets you straight through to our ‘North’ broadcasters directly.

Tonight [Oct. 14th] all channels of the RAI from Italy have synchronized their programs with a loop announcement. The same loop could be heard on the 900, 936, 900 and 1,575 kHz.

Unfortunately, Radio Milano has not been heard on 1602 kHz for several days now, only on Internet radio. I hope that Radio Milano will change the overcrowded frequency 1602 kHz to the current test frequency 927 kHz.

Currently – albeit irregularly – radio Z AM Milan can be received on 1350 kHz. However, its transmission power should only be a few 100 watts at most, because it is usually quite weak to receive.

Cumulus Media has turned in the licenses for a pair of AMs in Savannah GA.
Sports “900 The TicketWJLG notified the FCC on July 31 that its transmitter was damaged due to a lightning strike and was operating at 200 watts day as opposed to its licensed 4.35kW.
Co-located Conservative Talk 630 WBMQ went silent at the same time due to the damage to its transmitter. The company at the time told the FCC it was consulting with its engineers to determine if the transmitter can be repaired or if it needed to be replaced.
Rather than make the repairs the company has turned in the licenses for both stations back to the FCC. Both stations also had Construction Permits for unbuilt translators: 96.9 W245DD for WBMQ and 105.7 W289CL for WJLG. Cumulus continues to own four FMs in Savannah.
