The Crystal Ship 6850 4 Sept 2015 0130 UTC
« on: September 04, 2015, 0131 UTC »
0130z: Kansas "Carry On Wayward Son" - extremely heavy local RFI, tough copy
0139z: BTO "Let it Ride", signal a bit stronger
0142z: The Crystal Ship shortwave relay network ID, audio clip from Monty Python and the Holy Grail
0142z: Judas Priest "You got another thing coming"
0148z: Springsteen "No Surrender"
0153z: Autograph "Turnip the Radio"
0157z: TCS unchained ID, Jane's Addiction "Been Caught Stealing"

SINPO=32322, good signal peaks, just miserable conditions locally between fades and heavy local RFI.

0220z: Van Halen, one break, coming up.
0222z: The Who "I'm Free"
0233z: The Who "Magic Bus", Don Felder "Heavy Metal"
0238z: .38 Special "Rocking Into the Next Motel 8"
0241z: Springsteen "Born to Run". Yikes, 40 years this year?  Can't be.
0246z: Donner Pass Diner ad, Jackson Browne "Running on Empty"
0305z: Sounds like sign-off, Quint, Ramones

SINPO=33323, good signal peaks, a little less local RFI after 0230z.
