I'm going to ask him about repeating the test this coming Friday

Not trying to start an argument (really!!) but ***why would a broadcast
station even bother with these tests, other than maybe nostalgia or some
sort of uber-techno-geekiness on the part of the Chief Engineer or GM*** ?

I don't have any problem with DX tests (in fact, they're kind of neat) but I
guess I'm asking what really motivated stations to start doing them way back
when ? Sheer curiosity ?

Along the same lines, how many broadcast stations respond to reception
reports nowadays ?

Just wondering......
