— LAST NIGHT’S TEST STARTED AN HOUR EARLY ——

George Hudson, owner of WCPH and The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the NRC and IRCA are pleased to announce a special DX Test tonight, late night- January 2nd, 2021. The test will begin at 2 AM Eastern Time until 4 AM Eastern (0700-0900 UTC). 

We have been able to confirm with owner George Hudson that last night’s special DX Test started one hour earlier than scheduled…beginning at 1AM Eastern time (0600 UTC) so if you had overnight recordings running, especially in Europe—please check your recordings for traces of the WCPH 1220 kHz DX Test—you may have a nice surprise. 

According to George—“Sorry for the change. I started the test earlier because I couldn’t stay awake any longer. Long day!”

QSL INFORMATION

WCPH is currently celebrating their 65th anniversary of serving Southeastern Tennessee. The station’s branding is “Homegrown 1220” and “Southeast Tennessee’s Oldies Station.”

If you wish to report reception of the DX test from either tonight or December 26, 2020 please submit your report to the Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) at: 


We prefer an .mp3 recording of the best reception, no more than 2 minutes or so in length. If you cannot record the test, then detailed written reports can also be accepted. Please include time stamps for each element that you received—and describe the content as best you can.

Those who are successful will receive a .PDF file of the QSL card, suitable for printing. Please allow 2-3 weeks or longer to process.
