You're welcome Jorge.
The hash problem on MW also affects other small radios. The previous Elite Traveler  ["Executive"] was even worse.
Probably due to poor shielding.
I got good MW on my Eton Elite Traveler this morning, 1540 Bahamas 12380km
800 Bonaire 10860km
I selected "Time" in the display not "Signal Strength" :)

I don't know why, the only other station is in West Australian.

Do you have another staion close by?

It might be good in the future to also list other stations on the same frequency for some reference. What programming does it carry?

WNJC 1360 July DX Tests-- UPDATE--NEW QSL INFO

Les Rayburn
 



The Courtesy Program Committee (CPC) of the NRC & IRCA is pleased to announce that WNJC 1360 kHz in Washington Township, New Jersey will be conducting maintenance tests on their automation systems and other equipment during the summer, resulting in some opportunities for DX’ers to log this station. 

Chief Engineer Duke Hamann sent the following notice regarding the summer schedule for July including a special Independence Day test. 


WNJC AM Coverage Map

JULY SCHEDULE 

July 1st through 7th. Midnight EDT (0400 UTC) to 5 AM EDT (0900 UTC) “Hybrid” DX Test. Test will be daytime power, 3kw in their daytime pattern. [ SHOWN ABOVE ]  

The transmitter’s rated output is 5kW but currently is limited to 3kW. 

Test material will be limited to CW only at 800 hz, 900 hz, and 1,000 hz along with simultaneous transmission of FT-8 computer mode transmissions. 

FT8 is used by amateur radio operators to communicate over long distances at very low power levels. Receiving it is even easier, and can literally be done by putting a microphone from your computer close to your receiver’s speaker. Using FT8 WNJC was received nationwide and in several countries last year. How to get started, try these tutorials or search Google for “Getting Started in FT8.” 


July 4th Special Test. On July 4th WNJC will conduct a special Independence Day event starting at 8 PM EDT (00:00 UTC) until 6 AM EDT (1000 UTC). 

Test material will consist of voice ID’s, jingles, Morse Code IDs, sweep tones, along with special patriotic music and sound effects. 

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: 

WNJC DX Test Facebook Group:


QSL INFORMATION

QSL’s for the June tests and July 1-7 Tests will be handled by the Courtesy Program Committee of the NRC/IRCA. Our QSL requirements are very specific: 

  • All requests must be submitted via e-mail to: les@...
  • QSL requests must include a recording of the best two minutes of your reception in either .MP3, .WAV, or .MP4 video. No written reports will be accepted for verification. 
  • Requests must be received by August 1st. 
  • Only one QSL per DX’er regardless of how many times you receive the test (s). 
  • If you use a remote SDR or receiver to log the test, we will honor only one QSL per DX’er. No multiple QSL requests. You must clearly state the location of the receiver that you used to receive the station. 

The July 4th Special Test QSL requests will be processed directly by John “Duke” Hamann, Chief Engineer of WNJC. The requirements are: 

  • All requests must be submitted via e-mail to: kc2dux@.... Please include WNJC 4th DX Test in the subject line of the e-mail. 
  • Only one QSL per DX’er. You may apply for the July 4th Special QSL even if you have already received the test earlier.

I know Peter, but I think you referred just because of the price. i wanted to experience by myself. Fortunately Amazon has an extraordinary post sale customer's service!!

And now I wonder to myself why that hash is being generated just with the signal strength ON? A real mistery!!!!

Thanks Peter!

Hola Jorge,
I did advise you not to buy it.
I said you need a strong signal for it to display a PI code, which as you say defeats the object.
To remove to noise from MW,  DO NOT SELECT THE SIGNAL STRENGTH METER. This generates the hash. Select time or temperature instead.

Frank, I don't have one, but I have heard good things about the Retekess brand. Given the low price, I wouldn't count on it lasting a long time :-)

Hi Jorge!

I totally forgot about the DT-800 and I have one!

Haven't used it in a while.

Hi from España, 
Sangean DT-800 A very good one on FM with narrow/wide filters and variable fx steps. No built-in whip but easily manageable. See here:

Not a radio I have owned but given the price, it might be good or it might be shockingly bad.

How do you log these? Do you type as you go or keep a paper log sheet and do them all at once?
