The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the National Radio Club & The International Radio Club of America is pleased to announce a special DX Test for distant listeners for KJJR 880 kHz in Whitefish, Montana. The test is scheduled for Saturday morning, January 8, 2022 at 00:01 AM MST (07:01 UTC). The test will run for two hours until 02:00 AM MST (09:00 UTC).
The Chief Engineer for KJJR, Todd Clark will be performing regular maintenance of the station's audio chain during the test. Listeners will hear Morse Code IDs at 10 WPM 800 Hz and 20 WPM 1,000 Hz. There will also be sweep tones, telephone off-hook indicators, long-duration tones at 1,000 Hz, music, jingles, and more.

Test will be conducted at their daytime power level of 10,000 watts.


Please send reports of your reception of the test to the attention of the CPC Chairman at:

The CPC will design a custom QSL card for the test (Thanks to the talents of Joe Miller, KJ80) and send those reports which are verified to be correct via email. The requirements for a reception report are as follows:

  • Please send a brief recording of your reception (2 minutes in length or less) in .mp3, .wav, or .mp4 video format.
  • Include a description of equipment used including antenna, receiver, etc.
  • Your report must include an email address, and location (city, state, country if outside US)
  • If DX’er uses a remote SDR to receive the test, they must include the location of the SDR used, and the owner of the remote receiver (if known).
  • QSLs are limited to one per DX’er. If you receive the test on multiple SDRs in different locations, that’s great—and we’ll include the results in the report, but only one QSL will be issued.
  • Written reports with details are welcome, but cannot be accepted as proof of reception without a recording.
  • Reception reports must be submitted within 30 days of the test. (February 8, 2022)

A detailed report of the receptions will be provided to KJJR for their information and evaluation.

The IRCA/NRC CPC would like to thank the owners of KJJR, Todd Clark, and Paul Walker for helping to arrange the test. Best of luck to DX’ers!
