No bother - I just didn't know what 55 meant. Apparently it means "best success".

Welcome to HFU

Big signal at sign-on around 0425z. S8 with nice quality AM audio. 43444. Intro chatter about shortwave, T-shirts, then into Queens of the Stone Age.

Signal quickly dropped to S1-S5 and frequent fades at 0438z. Intermittent QRM hash near me is S7 and killing the signal too.  >:(

25432. Men at Work - Down Under.

I worked for them in their final years as Radio Shack in .ca ......

Do you remember SPIFFs? I worked for them for one summer and spiffs (cash bonus on certain products) were an extra way to make money for the employee. SPIFFs on big CB base stations were huge as were those for the first computers. Once in a while I'll ask an employee and they are still around, but not worth much.

The Chicago area had a bit of a problem with drug sales out of some stores. In order to get a job, you had to pass a lie detector test and at least half the questions related to drugs.

Thanks to Redhat and the crew for this really nice QSL of the Radio Ronin show on 12-3.
Very much appreciated!   8)

XLR8 into Chicago with a steady S8 signal and clear audio. ID at 2358z during continuous dance music. IIRC this is my first time hearing XLR8.

0017z - Ting Tings?
0024z - ID
0039z - Goodfellas "...always wanted to be a gangster", ID then off.

Thanks for the show. Solid S8 to the end. QSL appreciated.

We're both screwed up on time Redhat  ;D


S7 on an S6 noise floor with peskies about. Good solid carrier with bits of audio popping out now and then. Seems to be slowly improving.


Software / Re: Shortwave Broadcast Schedules Beta 0.0.2b2
« on: January 01, 2014, 1815 UTC »

Two issues have come up on my 0.0.2b2 version.

1) When I open the program, I get a repeating pop-up window saying that "this beta version has expired".
2) When I download the latest sked and renamed the file to sked.csv.txt, I was expecting some confirmation that the program was using it. This did not happen.

Please advise.


QSLs Received / Radio Plate Current

Received this email confirmation for last night's broadcast. Sounds like more formal QSL's are in the works.

Confirming reception of Radio Plate Current on 1/1/14 7:38Z 6925 KHz AM
Powered by Eimac. Big pipe vertical and power between 100 and 1000 watts somewhere in the X time zone.

I'm choosing to leave out the time zone for now.

Thanks RPC  8)


Radio Plate Current is S8 as I tuned in at 0738z with an ID and email address for a QSL.
Into dance music at 0739z. 35333.

Thanks for the shout  8)
0753z - op talking about 2014. Can do a lot with an Ipod, Heil mic, and a shortwave tx.
0800z - starting to lose you. In and out of the noise floor.

Thanks for the show.
