Re: Station test on 1480 kHz details

It isn't a test - it's an automation error. Just go to the university's website, locate the station list for football and with luck there'll only be one on 1480.

The test on 1480 kHz. is continuing past 5am. Here is what I know:
Test tone for 20 seconds.
Pause for 5 seconds.
Then a male says - "You're listening to the University of Illinois fighting Illini radio network Deerfield(?) communication satellite 27 Y(?). Your home for the University of Illinois athletics."
Pause for 5 seconds.

Now to find out what station is doing this.

Any help?
