Here also at 2125 UTC with an unid speech by OM. Is this FDR? Don't recognize the speech.... Got it tuned in better now.....FDR! I believe it might have been this speech on this link...?

Next speech is possibly FDR making a case for unemployment insurance and minimum wage? Is this his original acceptance speech?
I wish that damned wideband ute noise would qrt! Making things difficult to copy.....

Hearing this speech by FDR at 22:22UTC  signal strength is 10 over 9 at the moment. If people knew the real truth about this we knew that the Japanese were going to attack! We baited them here is a quote from Harry Stimson Secretary of War "We face the delicate question of the diplomatic fencing to be sure so as to be sure Japan is put in the wrong and makes the first bad move. ... The question was how we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot." Seek the truth about your own history!!

Just turned this on at 2250 UTC, and the signal is fair to good, with the speech coming through clearly out here in the middle of the afternoon.
