Radio Appalachia 6935 AM 0121z November 30, 2013

Radio Appalachia weak in NH tonight, S3-S4 and in/out of the noise (Thanks for the heads-up Token)

0120z Radio Appalachia ID ("Quiet numbskulls, I'm broadcasting") into bluegrass/banjo tunes
0150z Still going but way down in the noise now
0205z "The Old Rugged Cross" (I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it someday for a crown)
0207z "Amazing Grace"
0218z Off

Thanks Radio Appalachia, I wish conditions had been better.

S3 to S5 on the west coast. It would be pretty good copy but for the Chinese radar which is really cutting him up.

Peaking around S3 with some fading and an elevated noise floor. SINPO 24233.

Quick Three Stooges segment. Bluegrass and similar music.

If I caught it right, the op is broadcasting for the Ohio Valley region via a transmitter in West Virginia.

Thanks for the broadcast. :)

Update: Turned on the MFJ-1020 to tweak preselection and preamp gain. Sounding a little better.
