WTCR Theme x 5? Voice ID @ 0040
0041 - Kinks

Still in progress and strong in N. Texas at the moment (0120z).

FOX news would have ceased to exist under that bill ;D


Ummmm, How so?

FNC is a cable channel/satellite channel, not a chain of terrestrial broadcast channels ...

(That's how the fairness doctrine/equal time doctrine worked once upon a time: __local broadcasters__ were required to provide access for alternate views and this did not apply to the cable/satellite outlets.)

Started about 0329z

Over by approximately 0340z

You-tubed a couple segments:

That time signal on 3810 comes through fairly routinely here in Texas late at night, tho' not always very strongly.  Sometimes regional hamster chatter covers it up, but the carrier is usually audible.

What was noteworthy was how absolutely *strong* that transmission was and how weak the band was for normal on-continent traffic; 80 was anemic that night except for distant stations. I can't remember the last time I saw 80 M so weak yet this time signal station 3000 miles away transequatorial was coming in strong!

As President Obama's motorcade rolled down Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day, federal authorities deployed a closely held law enforcement tool: equipment that can jam cellphones and other wireless devices to foil remote-controlled bombs, sources said...


It's not a difficult thing to "OOS" (Out Of Service) in Motorola terminology or 'Block' in Ericsson terminology an MTSO MSC (the or a mobile telephone 'switch') from 'carrying traffic': one little command issued from a terminal connected to the IOG (input/output group), something along the lines of: GSBLI:SPM=xxxxx to block and GSBLE:SPM=xxxx to unblock.

A single or a group of individual cell sites can also be blocked/deblocked for security purposes; this was done in Pakistan on a regular basis when Musharif would fly in/out of the capital ...

"Give Me Love" seems to be a favorite of hers.

Commencing about 2203 Zulu

Various program content ...

(Weak copy at this location)

Still active at 2222z, spanish language traffic at +500 Hz up from 6925 kHz

2237z sig strength picking up a bit, still various program content

Signoff message at 2243, final song (Pink Floyd: "Comfortably Numb") still playing at 2248z

Sig strength really up for a few minutes at the last ...

Off air at 2249z

A beep every second, sorta like CHU but in Spanish!

I think the 80M band may have been long last night ...

Thanks for recording, Lex.
