Nothing heard here, and nobody has reported hearing the test, even listeners close to the station, so it seems it never went off as planned for whatever reasons.

Is this a clear channel? I had some talking and music on the freq last nite, and even this morning. Since I'm at the far top end of the continent everything is south of me. If they have a clear channel I had them no problem but I suspect this wasn't the case.

Next weeks contest: guess how many Volkswagons can fit in Joy Behars mouth. I pick five.

I gave them a try, although a little late, around 1:30am EST. I didn't hear anything, and I would have expected to have heard them via ground wave.
