2323 above the noise copy with fades below it, so the signal must be really good given how much daylight we have left here in Colorado.

That was great. I don't know what I would have thought if I had come across that just scanning the bands.

Utility / RMW
« on: March 25, 2019, 1611 UTC »
In the past I was under the impression that I could copy RMW on 9996 (easily the strongest of its three frequencies for me) only in the early part of the evening hours, when I could get it at all. It's been a seasonal copy in spring and early summer in my experience. However I have been getting it in the morning hours at my QTH recently, c. 1500 UTC. Perhaps the recent little burst of solar activity is helping.

Today's log is RMW on 9996 kHz CW, 1407-1448z, SIO 333. Still there as I type this at 1611z but just above the noise now.

Most likely you were hearing WTWW which is on 5085 and plays oldies at night. It's a big enough signal to hear if you don't tune. (Be sure to tune past an unfamiliar signal, then go back to find its true frequency - and narrow bandwidth filters help with that too.)

I have only a loud peskie on 6900 LSB. I had scanned through this around 2240 too. Ah well.

Copied all three transmission of the 1500 UTC hour. The first at 1500 on 16138 USB was fair to good, but poorly decoded with numerous errors. The second at 1520 on 14438 USB was the cleanest and strongest, and the third at 1540 on 13438 USB was very good too. I do notice at least one difference in the decoded messages though. I'm trusting the 1520 one more than 1540 just because that signal had the edge. (Times listed are MDT, or UTC -6.)

I had caught only a partial of this (I wasn't recording at the time). However, the exact same image was sent again at 0126 UTC on 6950 USB:

Does Drunken DJ Radio have an email address he gives out? Havent heard one announced, would like to drop him a line

Last time I asked he said no, no email. But keep your SSTV decoder handy, he's likely to send out a few of those.

Heard show at start of b'cast but had to get dinner with the fam. Making a recording, currently hearing cover version of "Everybody Knows" at 0044z, solid signal here in Colorado. Thanks for the show! Will kick back and enjoy it.

I know you usually wait for a couple of hours, but I'm going to put my request in. The Roches did a fantastic cover of "Acadian Driftwood." Please and thank you.

The Band version is of course great. Thanks for playing it.

If it's requests you want, requests I have. That Hot Tuna track reminded me of the Meat Puppets. "Up On The Sun" please? You may have to go online for it but I bet you'd dig it.  THANKS!!
