"Last Call" DX Test from KDWN 720 kHz in Las Vegas, NV- Feb 28, 2023

Les Rayburn

Your CPC Chairman stayed past closing time last night. In my exhaustion, I whiffed on the time zone corrections twice. Let’s see if the third time is the charm. 

KWDW DX Test on February 28, 2023, at 23:59 Pacific Time (7:59 UTC) for only ten (10) minutes. The test will be conducted at the full daytime power of the station, which has been 25,000 watts since 2020. We don’t have information about the station's antenna pattern, but this is the best chance to log K-Dawn in years. 

Programming will be “unique” but will not feature Morse Code or sweep tones. The Courtesy Program Committee did inquire about adding some of this material and possibly extending the length of the test. Neither could be arranged in the short time frame available. Mr. Teagarden has been very helpful and open to hobbyists, so please don’t complain. It’s not his decision. 

Remember this test begins at 23:59 on Feb 28 Pacific Time. 

00:59 Mountain Time.
1:59 Central Time.
02:59 Eastern Time. 
07:59 UTC. 

Don’t miss your last chance to log the Talk of Las Vegas and the last whisper of KDWN.
