KJJR - 880 - Montana DX Test Announcement for 1/8/22

Updated: Dec 28, 2021

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 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.


All reception reports will be verified through the CPC. Reception reports along with MP3 recordings or .MP4 video recordings of your reception should be emailed to: with the subject line: "KJJR 880 RECEPTION REPORT."

The following requirements are in effect in order to receive an electronic QSL verifying your report:

Reports via email only. Email must include an MP3 file attachment of your reception (best two minutes or so in length) or an MP4 video clip. While written descriptions will be considered along with the recording, they will not suffice alone for verification.

Reports must be submitted within 30 days of the test.

The report must include your name, location, and return e-mail address, clearly grouped together at the top of the verification request.

Please also include a description of your receiver, antenna, and any interference noted. If you use a remote SDR to receive the test, you must clearly indicate that in your verification request. We will only accept one such report per DX'er. You cannot log the test on multiple remote SDRs and request multiple verifications.

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

NOTE: We will be conducting a special edition of DX Central Live! for this DX Test.....stay tuned for details!
