“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:
JUNE SCHEDULE
Nightly for the entire month. June 1-June 30th starting at Midnight EDT (0400 UTC) for one hour. The Burke Controller will be programmed to switch to daytime pattern and power during that hour. Daytime power is 5,000 watts.
The test material will consist of a brief voice announcement, followed by nothing but Morse Code ID’s at 800 hz, 900 hz, and 1,000 hz. Most of the CW will be high speed at 25 WPM.
There will also be plenty of sweep tones, 1,000 hz long-duration tones, and off-hook sound effects. No music, voice, or other distractions. Similar to the KCUP test earlier this year, it should provide the optimum chance to cut through the summer static.
JULY SCHEDULE
July 1st through 7th. Midnight EDT (0400 UTC) to 5 AM EDT (0900 UTC) “Hybrid” DX Test. Test will be daytime power, 5kw but into an omnidirectional pattern.
Test material will be limited to CW only at 800 hz, 900 hz, and 1,000 hz along with the 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 its maintenance, CE Hamann has created a Facebook group:

WNJC 1360 AM DX Tests.
So I wanted to pass along our plan for the month of June. As I like to do things no one else has done before and WNJC is still operational, we will be doing a 1 hour High Octane DX test at midnight EDT for the entire month of June. We will be operating at daytime power and direction during these tests. More information will be available as we get closer. For July, I am planning a 7 day midnight to 5am hybrid DX test. This will be sweeps and cw along with FT8 audio together. I am also planning on doing a 4th of July special “Independence Day” DX Test 8pm to 6am EDT test that will include a special QSL card. Looking forward to some more DX tests!!

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.
