Another Sunday Morning Test

The May 1st, WCGA test was a success here 880 miles from its transmitter. 

Began hearing the test just after 0400 UTC with the “Star Spangled Banner” under WTAM, followed by Morse code, sweep tones, etc. until I shut off the IC-R8600 and went to bed about 15 minutes into the test. Best heard on the 120-foot Loop Under Ground antenna, weaker on the remaining leg of the 80-meter dipole and nothing on the HyGain 18AVT/WB-A vertical.
