US: Test station to recreate Fessenden broadcasts from 1906
U.S. test station WI2XLQ will be on air at 486 kHz AM with a Reginald Fessenden memorial transmission. Brian Justin, WA1ZMS, is the licensed WI2XLQ. Station is on air 24 hours beginning 31st December 2000 UTC. Transmitter uses a modern 500W linear amplifier. The repeating program includes two violin pieces Fessenden allegedly played in his radio lab in Brant Rock, Massachusetts back in year 1906.
“It remains questionable whether such a broadcast ever happened, but Fessenden has had some speech transmissions over a few miles away near Washington D.C. in early December as a demonstration for the US Navy.” says Justin. “So perhaps Fessenden deserves recognition for his efforts.”
