0126 - S5-S6 in west Michigan. 

Optimizing for a bad SDR, but as long as conditions stay OK I'll be able to listen for the rest of the night.   
(Switched to the FTDX3000d, much better noise filtering for conditions).

Thanks for Carole King!

Would you play some Neil Young?

This one is getting framed:

Partial copy, I goofed my audio settings:

(https://i.imgur.com/14iHYzx.jpg)

Dame Edna, is that you?

(https://i.imgur.com/VAKFUf5.jpg)

In the noise here.  But barely listenable because of the noise filtering on my transceiver.

(https://i.imgur.com/DPXzvgF.jpg)

Propagation is barely hanging in there.  I can make out the music somewhat.  The voice, not so much.  Any chance you are thinking about QSYing to 90m?

Can't hear what you're saying, but I'm hanging in there.  Thanks for being here tonight.

(https://i.imgur.com/gBosgqM.jpg)

0359 - I barely made out that last part.  I understand about no QSY. :-)  Conditions seem to stabilizing.  Tom Petty was very strong.

(https://i.imgur.com/edIIp2G.jpg)

You are, by all measures, a fine human.

(https://i.imgur.com/0bEndM5.jpg)


Shaved her legs and then...well, you know the rest.


Will you play something hard enough to get through the static? :-)

Thanks.  :)

0438 - I can hear you better now, and the SSTV was strong, but  I goofed my audio somewhow. 
0438 - California Dreaming.  Props coming back around the planet.

0447 - hearing you better.

0450 - audio better yet.  apparently the earth is not flat, despite what pro athletes say.  In five years when the propagation gods have smiled on us once again we shall drink mead in Valhalla, my brother.

0457 - stronger yet.  You were wise to stick with this frequency.  I have much to learn.  Will you play "Uncle John's Band"?

0500 - "Only a Fool Would Say That" Steely Dan

0512 - Hey WDDR!  Love "Uncle John's Band"  Reminds me of heady days. Thank you.


0524- (https://i.imgur.com/ey2nKp1.jpg)

0525 - Jesus left Chicago.  Chicago is for people from west Michigan who want to get away.

0527 - Props = better.

0529 - Love Steve Winwood

(https://i.imgur.com/q1myc1O.jpg)

0541 - We want the funk  -- indeed

0549 - will you play bonnie raitt?  or any female blues?

0517 - driver 8

0650 - WDDR Thanks for the show!

Not a great signal way out here; it's been just above the noise since I tuned in around 0130 UTC. But the music is audible.

It's now 0306 UTC and the signal level has gone up quite a bit from 90 minutes ago. The music is coming through fair, and I can almost understand the chatter at 0307 UTC.

Not super strong here tonight, the band is kind of flat.  But S6 or so, and good audio.  Excellent work WDDR!

Also, got a chance to try out my new automated Pirate SSTV page.  tonight I put together an automated page that uploads whatever SSTV from whatever freq that specific radio is tuned to.  The intent is to leave it on 24/7 on 6935 USB, and only tune it off when a specific station is tuned in.  Such as in this case, I tuned it down to 4015 kHz USB in time for the second SSTV image.

It will say at the top what freq it is tuned to.

http://www.tokenradio.net/Radio/SSTV/SSTV.htm

It is a work in progress, and so will change over the next little while, but nice that the first image it uploaded was a WDDR image ;)

(edit)  Has gotten a bit better as the evening went on.  Wife and I went to town to grab some ice cream in the middle of the show.  Was able to listen the whole way to and from town in the mobile, but in town some of the power line noise killed it.  Nice job WDDR!

T!

0225Z 59+  into Coastal SC, audio on music great, but DJ is lower but copyable, better audio now you changed

0250z 59 still, music audio is fine, but your voice seems like it has too much on the low end, need a few highs added, otherwise sounding great as usual

0429z signal has taken a major dive here, now s7 with a s5 noise floor, music is just about copy-able here now
0431zjust as I posted that, so the signal came out the noise, almost like the power was turned up, now s9+10 again

0435z Sounds like he's talking about me!  Thanks dude!!  Perhaps a repeat of the SSTV earlier?  Can't tell, as the virtual soundcard on the winradio got screwed up a while back and I haven't quite sorted it out yet.

Well, the longest still standing pirate on the air New Year's Eve.  Recorded via my SDR and downloaded many SSTV images.  Tuned into WDDR at 02:08, and kept going until signing off around 06:50.  Heard 1000 km NW of Vancouver at my DX cottage on the ocean, 70 km south of Ketchikan AK.  Well heard overall, but slowly faded to very difficult copy by sign off.  Darn, I forgot how to post images of all of the SSTV images!  Perhaps someone can remind me again on how to do this.  I tried to look it up but the details don't seem to work!  Anyway, 73, from Haida Gwaii, Canada.
