Boom Box Radio doing well in NH this evening but with lots of QSB, S4-S7.  Still well before sunset so the static levels aren't a problem so far.  Audio sounds good, glad you got things straightened out BBR.

2237z Boom Box ID
2302z Off, thanks BBR

Listening via eastern SDR, Lana Del Rey "Video Games" at 2250z.  Fair peaks, lots of fading to barely audible, some sideband QRM.
2253z: Announcer chatter, possible station ID, just barely audible.

Oops, I had the SDR RF and IF gain turned way down.  Much better after boosting the IF +12.

2302z: Lost signal.

RCCI, we're about 1000 miles from Chicago, so that's why you can't hear us, running 25 watts AM this time of day.
Yes, Dim, we had modulation issues, but fixed it!
thanks for the posts, going off in a few.  DJ LT

Hi Bill F, thanks for all your help and audio clips!!!!


2302 Off.
