Huh? / Re: Dick Dale, King of the Surf Guitar, Is Dead at 81
« on: March 21, 2019, 1957 UTC »
Rizla, the guy could play about any instrument. Most of the live footage you see of him on the net he plays the trumpet part in "Miserlou" with one hand while playing the guitar riff with the other. Left handed and upside down would describe Dick's guitar style. It was good enough for him and the left handed Jimi Hendrix who idolized Dale.
Unless I'm mistaken the difference between Hendrix & Dale is that Hendrix played a right handed guitar lefty but restrung it low E to high E (top to bottom) as would be traditional while Dale played a right handed guitar lefty but left the strings as is so he was actually playing "upside down" high E to low E (top to bottom).  No easy trick that's for certain.

Clandestine Stations / QSL requests

Hello - I have been receiving (legitimate) emails of reception reports from HFU members requesting QSLs.  I do not know why....
Please note that I have no way to get your QSL request filled by any of the clandestine stations.

2304z tune in with twangy slide guitar tune - sounded kinda like a Little Feat tune but not - then ethereal piano tune into a song that sounded as if it was a child's music box - into SSTV about 2316z.
Very strong & clear S9++ here.

Got it - thx again.

Nice catch & thx for the heads up as I had them 1800-1900z - probably from A18.

I haven't found 2019 yet but 2017 & 2018 schedules weren't much different from one another so, whatever that tells you.......



Mebbe it's a choice between paying the city pensions or going trunked.
Well their priority certainly isn't the former - that can just gets kicked down the road time & time again....  But they found $millions to beautify the riverwalk; which is nice....
Whatever the reason I'm glad they haven't gone trunked!

In the shooting gallery that we call Chicago, they are still using old school 100% un encrypted voice transmissions for city, Crook County police & fire.  Even the leafy green suburbs that surround the gallery still rely on the regular old voice transmissions.
There has been talk here for 15+ years to switch to something new but it never happens.  I guess the guys who sell & maintain the old school radios are still giving the right envelope to the right guy.
So lucky for me I can still listen to the mayhem that engulfs this City every single day.

HM01 has been in repeat mode of the same groups since 11/3 thru today 12/31.  This is the longest repeat mode period that I can recall.  Not sure what this means - if anything.
