The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the NRC & IRCA is pleased to announce that WNJC 1360 kHz in Washington Township, New Jersey will continue to run weekly maintenance tests each late night Saturday/Sunday Morning this month. 

Chief Engineer Duke Hamann sent the following notice this afternoon: 

Happy New Year! I wanted to let you know that I will be continuing our DX tests into 2021 on WNJC 1360 AM every Sunday 0100 - 1100 UTC (Saturday 8pm - Sunday 6am EST) in January.

Power level and pattern will be .8kw SSE till midnight EST then will be 5kw SSE midnight to 6am EST. If anything changes, I will post in our Facebook group and try to get it to the IRCA list as well.

01/10/21 01:00 - 11:00 UTC (01/09 08:00 PM - 01/10 06:00 AM EST)

To assist in keeping DX’ers informed of last minute changes and to better track receptions of the station during it’s maintenance, CE Hamann has created a Facebook group:

This is an excellent opportunity for European DX’ers to log this station during the winter—with minimal ionization of the D-Layer during the day—and quiet nights perfect for reception.
