:) At least it is properly modulated unlike most of the TIS stations. While travelling last week I tuned into close to 8 of them and only 1 had decent modulation. The rest were terrible and you could tell they are updated "over the phone".

Drove right through that county just the other day and forgot to check it out. :( I get this TIS regularly up here with the local one at the Springfield (MA) Armory. They seem to have technical difficulties more often than not and just loop that message over and over. :)

I was in elementary school during all this and I tried to explain to my wife who is much younger how significant it was at the time. Seemed like the earth stood still while we all waited for the next update from the mission. We were recently at the Cape Canaveral Space Center and saw their Apollo 11 movie which brought all those memories back. It was a great time to be alive to witness it first hand as it happened and it was a highly positive thing that brought everyone together.

Can't get any more lightweight than that! :)

Moving New York City out of the T band won't be easy. They refused to narrow band when the requirement came out which is why no other licensee in the T band had to narrow band. They are a huge user with a bit of clout.

Welcome to the hobby Mars! You should also check out - http://priyom.org/ - for "spy numbers". There are a lot of unusual and strange signals on SW. Don't forget pirate broadcasters often in the 6925 - 6955 kHz range.

Radio Moscow has some serious flame thrower transmitters. Sometimes the audio was very poor. I don't remember them splattering like China though. The old days of the late 70s and 80s were a lot of fun. You could hear tons of countries broadcasting and the content was often very good.

Nice signal here, little to no fading, good 80s tunes. :)

There used to be some FM walkie talkies on the "A" channels long ago. Don't think they were FCC approved as they didn't stay on the market long. I seem to believe that either Midland or Maxon made them.

Good signal here with Bruce Springsteen songs and George Carlin comedy.

There are some regulars in the mid west who use 15A often. Hear them everytime conditions are good.

Good signal about S5 here.

1844: ID
1845: Der Kommissar, After the Fire

Had a nice signal up here in the northeast. Listened to most of the show via the home FM transmitter while on the tractor moving dirt around the property. :)

I haven't put a 9330 kHz filter on my SDR yet. I'm watching to see if the overloading is regularly occurring or not. I currently have one tuned to 7435 kHz to reduce the overloading affects of R. Marti that did occur almost nightly. Ideally, if I could rig up a coax switch on a timer that would only add them at night during the high signal strength time... hmmm. :)
