WTMP 1150 STEREO TEST TONIGHT— Starting in one half hour (midnight Eastern).
WTMP 1150 kHz in Tampa, FL will be conducting a test in AM Stereo tonight per a post from owner Neil Ardman in the Facebook Group “I Love AM Radio.”
Details are minimal but we assume that the test will commence at the start of experimental hours, beginning at Midnight Eastern Time (0400 UTC)
We can also assume that the test may be at their daytime power of 10,000 watts but this is NOT CONFIRMED.
No information on duration or programming. Some sweep tones, Morse Code IDs, etc. have been e-mailed to Neil but no word on if he received them in time to incorporate them into the test. Fingers crossed.
Best bet is to tune in and record the session, perhaps find an online remote SDR or live stream to verify your reception

NO signals audible at 0405 on 1150 at Tampa and Orlando remotes; defective?
WTMP both day and 500 watt night patterns go S/SSE.
