Off air sometime before 0310Z.

Just caught the ID nice and strong that time, Chamber Pot Radio. They're S4-5 in central Saskatchewan tonight.

Been hearing a station in the noise since 0245 or so, but not been able to catch the ID. Did catch that the broadcast was dedicated to Ragnar, though.  Playing polkas now.

S7-S9 into central Saskatchewan tonight at 0611z. Great signal!

0637z the signal dropped down to S3 or so. Still readable, but more static. Posting a video up to YouTube of the reception here about half hour ago. Should be uploaded shortly.

Hearing RTN here in Central Sask tonight decently. Static crashes are loud, but the signal is around S7-S9 and fairly steady. Playing some trance I don't recognize now. Caught the ID earlier, RTN please keep your hands out of my girlfriend's pants. :)

Hearing them nicely in central Saskatchewan tonight. About 45334 on the new antenna here around 0336. Quite a bit of QSB, unfortunately. Sent message to gmail address, got on air mention.  :)

Propagation dropped out here, down to 25322 here now at 0400Z. Just a few snippets of sentences understandable here and there on QSB peaks.

At 0413 I can't copy anything other than modulated noise. Turning off the rig, the propagation gods aren't with me tonight. Have fun all!

They're about S5-7 steady here in central Saskatchewan at 0430z.

Intermittent QRM in the form of a carrier, but it's way down compared to the broadcast.

Just fired up the rig in time to hear the email address for QSLs and then "73 and good night".

Signal was decent, about S5 here in Saskatchewan with S9 static crashes.

Edit: Thanks for the ack of the email Captain Ron! Definitely next time. :)

Red Mercury Labs coming into central SK decently tonight.

Station ID, and request of "Ring of Fire" played again at 0305z. Quite good copy, though strength is only S5-S7. Not too noisy up this way tonight.

Getting some intentional QRM here now at 0322z.

Crud, just realized I'd been recording RF data, not audio data. Starting recording over, though if anyone has SpectraVue and wants to download 350MB, let me know. :P

Fading getting quite bad now around 0430z.

Somewhat off frequency recording (sorry) up at http://www.unixgeeks.ca/audio/. Still working out a few bugs on the recording system. :)

Heard Renegade Radio about S7 here as well, in Central Saskatchewan. Up on 6930USB just above Radio True North. New one for me as well.

Hearing RTN very strong here in central Saskatchewan. Peaking the meter at S9+20dB this evening. Great show, Playing Delerium now.

Nothing up in central SK but a carrier and the faintest hint of a signal on fade peaks. Definitely something there though, at 0425.

Sounds like they're signing off, at 0432. Just able to hear them above the noise here in central Saskatchewan.

Gaa, August 8th! Not 7th. Stoopid UTC... :P

Hearing RTN again tonight, though with quite marginal conditions. Lots of static crashes and much reduced signal strength compared to other nights. Playing "Raise a Little Hell" and others I don't recognize. Got ID with email address for reception reports.
