Radio WTFYWTCM 6940 + AM 0001 11-9-13
« on: November 09, 2013, 0003 UTC »
Music---decent signal, but lots of QRM 3-4 Khz up. S6 into GA

Tuned back in at 0029, seems to be up around 6942 now.S5-S6. Maybe a talk break?

6943.6 at 0041. I keep thinking I hear talk breaks, but can never hear it good enough. Fisherman QRM is bad at times.

6944.6 0050. Signal is much improved now into GA

6945+ 0056
off at 0057ish

BIG signal into northern Canada, S-9+ on peaks. Heard Ramones "I wanna be sedated", then into another Ramones song, cut off audio after several seconds. OM talking about energy, then back into Ramones. Great to hear you! Killer signal. Please e-QSL if possible.
