Whiskey Redneck Radio coming into NJ on 6925.15 kHz, USB mode, with a readable signal from 0152 tune in to 0210 UTC. Several ID's heard, including 0152, 0154, and 0203. Paused between selections, which included "Hobo Bill," by Grandpa Jones and "Skinner Blues" at 0206 UTC. Also mentioned that he's being heard in Montana, Iowa, Virginia and other states, using a dipole. Add NJ to the list and thank you for the program, my first logging of Whiskey Redneck Radio.

Please QSL!

Intuned at 1:53z Using PL880 tonight as I walk my hound. WWR ID at 1:55. much Grampa Jones & talk of smackng in the mouth. 28 Dbu on Pl880. Interesting that I never lost the signal even inside of 7-11. Thats very unusual.

I didn't have time to mention it last night but as I was inside of 7-11 with my PL880 in my hand a guy in line behind me asked if I was listening to the ball game (silly ball games) & I responded that I was hearing a new pirate station & that got everybody's attention. I unplugged the phones & let the assembled group of cigarette & beer purchasers hear. I had to give a very short lecture on what shortwave is & why it is so damn cool..."it bounces off of the sky". a couple of guys came outside with me & asked where to get a radio like that,etc. I directed them to HFU to learn about it & to Twente to actually hear stuff without having to invest any money. One guy was actually taking notes.

a pretty entertaining show with good reception here. Thanks WWR.
