Re: KCUP 1230 Toledo, Oregon DX Test Report

Great to see these tests are producing some good results and giving the DXing hobby a bit of a boast.

First weekend off in eight weeks. Finally found time to dig through all the reports and compile a list of those who successfully received the test. Joe Miller will be working on electronic QSL’s which will be e-mailed in the coming weeks. Please be patient. 

Also authored the attached report for the station owner, Steve Rubin. 

We are very grateful for Mr. Rubin for airing the test. 

Also all credit and thanks due to our volunteers on the Courtesy Program Committee for the International Radio Club of American & National Radio Club. They are:

Any mistakes in the report are mine. Apologies for the delay. Congratulations to all who received the test. There were several over 2,000 miles distant, and a new NRC Graveyard Record claim by Odd-Jorgen Sagdahl in Norway. It is at a distance of 4,524 miles.

Tim Hall will make the official determination. But it’s safe to say that a new record was set during this test.
