For those who want to try, there is a frequency measurement test coming up next week.

The test transmission will be from a single station in Oklahoma using the call sign W100AW/5.  The transmission format will be a single, unmodulated carrier.  Measure the frequency of that carrier as accurately as possible.

The FMT will start on 20 meters near 14121 kHz at 10:30 PM EDT on April 9th (Wednesday evening) in North America. (That is 0230 UTC on April 10th, Thursday morning, in Europe.)





A special W100AW Frequency Measuring Test certificate will be available to stations submitting a measured frequency within ±10 Hz of any of the three transmitted frequencies.
