RADIO 48 6880 USB 0037 12 SEP 2020
« on: September 12, 2020, 0037 UTC »
New age-type music? Solid S9+ into the National Capital Region, then dropped a bit but still S7.

0041 YL announcer says, "Live from the West Coast, Mood Lounge Chill Out Radio"
0045 Air raid sirens until 0047 - not very chill???
0048 Shazam says this is "Strawberry Letter 23," Shuggie Otis
0051 YL announcer with "Radio 48" ID
0054 "Mix Mix Mix" - possible relay

Thanks for the program!

Here's how it sounded at my QTH:

I had a big signal on my IC-7100, but when I switched to the RSPdx (same antenna) it's much weaker. Don't know if something happened while I was making the change or not, will have to switch back and see.
0044 back to a big wide signal
0045 air raid sirens
0047 Radio 48 ID into "Strawberry Letter 23" Shuggie Otis per shazam
0051 Radio 48 ID into "Right Place Wrong Time" Dr. John
0054 "Pusherman" Curtis Mayfield

The signal faded up nicely just before 0100 UTC out here near Seattle ... it's fair but gaining strength. Reception's still clearer than the skies here!

0059 UTC: "Pick Up the Pieces" by Average White Band.
0103 UTC: Radio 48 ID into "Smiling Faces Sometimes" by The Undisputed Truth.
0106 UTC: Radio 48 ID, then Mix Radio International ID into "Ball of Confusion" by The Temptations.
0110 UTC: Radio 48 and MRI IDs into "When the Sun Goes Down" by Lack of Afro.
0113 UTC: Radio 48 ID into "Foxy Lady (part 1)" by Soul Agents.
0116 UTC: Mix Radio International ID into "Give Up the Funk" by Parliament.
0120 UTC: MRI ID into "Anna (Go to Him)" by Arthur Anderson.
0139 UTC: I stopped logging details and am just listening to the music. The signal's faded up to good now. Hearing only Mix Radio IDs the past 25 minutes or so.
0148 UTC: Radio 48 email given, then Mix Radio ID.

Thanks for the funky tunes this evening!

Tuned in at 0106utc, fair signal with low noise, black music group playing,
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
