Mix Radio International 6879 USB 1616 UTC 27 Oct 2018
« on: October 27, 2018, 1616 UTC »
1616 SIO 444 signal, nice wide audio
2000 Off or faded out around this time. A Fleetwood Mac song was playing, so nothing of value was lost  8)

Some fade outs and in between those two times, I had it on in the background while doing various things, thanks for the afternoon programming Mix Radio, it was much appreciated!

2030 Might be hearing some just around the noise level audio?
2045 Faded back in, SIO 444

howdy Mix, im tuned in listening as of now (was out all day) - good to hear you on the air 8)
16Khz SSB audio (32Khz BW) - really neat ! (edit: haha, i goofed and was thinking AM combined BW)
reception is excellent on the Uniontown SDR, i would love to try my own receiver but i lowered the antenna in preparation of the high winds.
either way, i found the best sound quality is using I/Q for SSB and moving the BW sliders for LSB/USB/DSB respectively for Kiwi SDR's.
in this case, since Mix has a light amount of audio up to +1Khz on the LSB side, using I/Q as 1.5Khz for LSB and 5992Khz for USB adds to enhance the sound quality by adding those additional audio frequencies on LSB to the program on USB
