Radio Totse 6925 09:57z-10:40z 08-06-13

6925 USB

Had technical issues with my receiver, so I missed the majority of the broadcast, but when I checked HFU this morning & saw Gabriel's post (thnx!) I set the recorder back up.  Signal was similar to what I heard the other night, but waited for the SSTV for confirmation.

By the way, this is with my array pointed south - I need to replace one of my coax feeds so I can point west, which always give me better reception for Radio Australia and hopefully will improve my reception for RT.

SDR recording catch. Some audio noted around 0856. Gone sometime after 0946, it was getting too light here.

Recorder Catch on 6925USB

0853 On with OM ID, announcements, and into music.  Following was a show of music with occas OM talk, and on a couple of good
        signal peaks, I could hear that RT has some pretty good audio going as I could hear a nice tight bass line in the songs.  The
        signal peaked a bit mid show, and began degenerating towards shows end.  SSTV heard but was not capped automatically.
        Will try manual later.
1040 off

Here is a one minute audio clip of the show's start, and this is the best ID I have been able to get so far:


Here is a screen cap of all activity last night:

Everything posted last night is in there; from the right MRI (on 6975), 2 shows from PPVR, and Totse between 8500 and 2200 seconds (offset from 1117z).  The plot shows pretty definitive sign on/off times for RT, and even grogged out in the morning I could guess that Totse was in good before opening up the audio file.  The little bump around 16500 seconds is a SS pesc QSO.  Luckily the noise floor (which had become pretty elevated from storms around the MRI BC) had settled down by the time Totse came  up.

Thanks again Dak;  you're rockin' our world!
