I'm not a Ham, but try to share my interest of shortwave with most folks I come in contact with.  The static either scares them off or peaks their interest and then I've got their attention.  I recently gave my Tecsun PL-660 to an Afghan Vet who was a translator and speaks multiple languages.  He was more than excited by the idea of listening to a portable radio to practice his skills and when I explained reception quality varies with time & season similar to tidal activity (he's a surfer) that was it.  Don't know if he'll get his ticket, but at least someone else digs it :)

9276 AM_USB  Antenna facing South

Weak signal again, but could hear the broadcast from start to finish and Radio Liangyou wasn't so dominating on 9275.

No luck with the other time slots closer to sunset...the 1200z slot is best for me here on the East Coast.

There are a lot of weird people in this hobby, both op's and DX'er's. Have someone tell you the story of "Lad" of "Voice of The Night". He's in a Kentucky prison for the second time, he's at least a two time felon. It's hard to tell what he did as a juvenile, the records are sealed.

That's funny; I was just looking at this thread yesterday on the Wayback Machine.

As receiver of all negative waves, I got a message from Fansome saying that the Belinda has been recommissioned in the hereafter. However, he has been harassed several times by a skiff containing Beans, Mosby, Thumper and Bouncer all ranting about the coming rodent revolution. He's hoping the penguins will return and provide some air cover.

Weak, but just barely audible with low noise conditions.  Had FEBC i-Radio Liangyou banging away on 9275, so listening in USB mode.  I used the audio files on Priyom's site to identify the flute intro and of course could hear the YL voice in Chinese (not that I would be able to identify the language anyway), but that's about it.  At 1211 UTC either faded out or off.

First time catching this station...need to try the time slots closer to sunset or afterwards.

A quick google search shows that image for a T-Shirt with various slogans underneath the orb ring...makes for a good SSTV though.

Good signal overall.

Wow, that's an interesting read.  I always loved his programs, but got a kick out of some of his tech ideas...I had a fellow dxing brother-in-law who did a hilarious rendition of Arnie satirically explaining how to make an antenna from matchsticks & receiver from bamboo shoots.
