Huh? / Happy Groundhog Day!
« on: Today at 05:46 »
The most high Holiday of the year. You can enjoy them on your plate, or keep them as pets, they're a most versatile beast. Careful of their marmot cousins west of the Rockies and in Eurasia, they carry Yersinia Pestis, or the Bubonic Plague, a nasty contagion much worse than Covid-19.

A happy Birthday to my boyhood friend, Groundhog Brown. A swell guy of Fansomian qualities. And remember, Al is watching you, so please shower in your clothes.

FANCO thanks you.

Radio Mosiach is now on FM? Another victim of the Hudson County Franken-TIS! How will DX'er's know if Rabbi Schneerson has finally risen
from the dead?

"Left Wing, Right Wing, The Same Nut." LOL. They both believe in variations of the same things, with a wildly different take on them, don't they? Ted Kennedy was thought to be a Commie by some folks when I was a young man, while others thought he was a Fascist. I thought he was a well to do drunk? 

They start to pick up here around 22:00 UTC, Ray, and are best from 0:00 to 3:00 UTC. They're never overwhelming. I check a SDR in Sardinia and another in the Canary Islands to confirm it's them. Both usually have good signals from Indy. The one in Sardinia is the only Kiwi on the island and the one on Fuerteventura in the Canaries is the only Kiwi on that island.

The one in Sardinia has been on and off for the past couple of weeks. I don't know if they're having technical problems or the guy didn't pay his power bill?

He's got problems, Fairway, lot's of problems.

Wait a second, Stumpy went to Woodstock and died a few years ago? And I thought he was going to drive his riding lawnmower over to Bonaroo this summer? The Saga of Stumpy gets stranger and stranger.

He's gone long, we're too close together. The way he was cutting out, he must have got that engineering experience from his Lionel Train set back in the early 50's? I wonder if he still has one of those engineer caps?

In Vermont? Another one of his delusions. And I see in the posts above, the bad old jammers are back. It's all in your head, Stumpy, you've gone too long without your meds. take them and go to bed, you're an old man.

Odd comment from a man who isn't in New England either, Stumpy? Not much of a signal here and I'm first hop from where you're at.

You must be hearing things, no jammer heard here. But given your condition hearing things that aren't there is common. Stelazine will make those voices go away. 

Huh? / Today, January 20th is "Penguin Awareness Day"
« on: January 21, 2023, 0038 UTC »
They'll be migrating back north in a couple of months. Beware of low fliers and stay away from bodies of water, they can propel themselves at hypersonic speeds onto land. Be careful and beware.

This has been a public service announcement from FANCO Industries, Refiners of Whale Oil for Lighting and Lubrication for over Two Hundred and Fifty years. Look for the Penguin on the containers.

If these op's would play more Go-Go's these tones would go away. Trust me.

"Born To Be Wild" Steppenwolf way down in the noise. Audio bandwidth is a little narrow.

Steve Miller with his 1973 hit "Take The Money And Run" segue into Talking Heads homage to David Berkowitz, "Psycho Killer". The Cars,"Just What I Needed" Ric Ocasek was almost fool enough to come off the stage and duke it out out with my cousin on their first national tour after Ronnie kept calling him, "Plastic Man", due to the way Ric was dressed. Ronnie was a mean ex-soldier just released from Ft. Leavenworth. Ronnie would've hurt him bad.

Derrick And The Dominos featuring the great Duane Allman on slide guitar with "Layla". I dunno who the other guitar player was, some English guy.

The signals really gone south,WWWW, and I'm not talking about Duane Allman. The static is wiping you out. I think I'll try a SDR out west.

Wait a second, I know that drum pattern down in the noise, that's "Susie Q" but by who?

An English looney, UFO's, and Eisenhower? What is Winston Churchill on a bender in 1959?

"Take Me Back To Tulsa" a big hit for Bob Wills And His Texas Playboy's, the Kings of Western Swing. "Ahh, pick it Jody!"

Bob was quite the entertainer and he hired top talent.

I'm lucky I missed it! My Grandpa would have risen from his grave and thrown me in it for listening to FDR.
