The DX Central MW Frequency Challenge

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor Loyd Van Horn at DX Central who shares the following announcement:

It is with much excitement that I announce the launch of a new, fun initiative from DX Central: The MW Frequency Challenge!

The MW Frequency Challenge consists of DXers trying to log as many stations on a single frequency as they possibly can – and we all do it together at the same time!

This week’s frequency: 910 kHz

DXers can use the link below to submit their loggings starting now through the end of our live stream on Saturday during DXC Live!

Google Form for Loggings: https://forms.gle/miJJ6rE81uuyNDzG9

After the conclusion of our livestream, we will tally up the logs and announce the results. The DXer with the most logs on the frequency will receive a special customized “eCertificate” from DX Central!

Speaking of the live stream, don’t forget to join us for the premiere of Season 2 of DXC Live on Saturday, Nov, 27th at 0145 UTC on our YouTube channel at: youtube.com/c/dxcentral.

During the stream, we will be conducting our usual live AM DX session (including some time spent on 910 kHz to close out this week’s challenge). In addition, we are debuting a new feature on DXC Live: DXC 1-on-1, which consists of interviews with some of the biggest and most influential names in the DX community. This week, we will be joined by Wayne Heinen, the Chairman-of-the-board of the National Radio Club. Wayne will be sharing his expertise as a longtime hardcore DXer as well as some fantastic information about the National Radio Club!

You definitely do not want to miss out on this week’s livestream!
