Many members know of WNRC, the little station that seems to show up at the conventions. These are some of the jingles used on the station.

Heavy interference from unknown station with female folk song at start with what sounds like organ music at start. At 5:30 male voice in an unidentified foreign language. Splatter from 1700 KBGG.
(Nobody has fessed up to being the operator of this mystery station. Anyone know where this came from?)


Did I Hear That?

I'm always amazed at two things in our hobby. First, is the ability of low power to be heard at great distances. Second, is the ability of members to did these signals out of the noise. In the fall of 2004, I conducted a test with one of the editors of the DX Audio Service to see if low power could be detected. The transmitter was 1 watt, into an Isotron antenna, located in Lima OH. The transmission was AM, with a loop of a sweep tone and the slow Morse Code characters "NRC". The word was put out, and what you hear below are the results.
