Tuned in at 0117utc to 6950, hear absolutely nothing but low noise level, R8 & dipole. (edit) at 0146 switched to 4020usb, good sig, xmas program.  

2132
At 2340utc barely detected carrier in ssb mode, R8 & dipole.

2133
Tuned in at 2334utc, good sig with low noise, hear song in Hebrew, R8 & dipole, excellent wideband audio, actual bass notes in ssb. (edit) "christmas wrapping" by The Waitresses, now "xmas polka". (2nd edit) At 0022utc played "F**k xmas" by Fear (I recorded that off college FM radio back in the 1980's which they played after I requested it). (3rd edit) Off at 0037½utc.

Shortwave Broadcast / Radio Verdad, 4055am, 12-20-2016, 0500utc

Just signed online. I have been listening to 4055am for about a half hour, weak signal, at first thought it was a tropical band station but seemed to be English language gospel music. At 0511utc they played "glory glory halleluia" which a foreign stn is unlikely to play. Still listening. RF-4900 & dipole. (edit) Woman speaking at length about something but audio so bad it's impossible to understand anything she's saying. At 0523utc organ music with singing. (2nd edit) preacher preaching but audio so crappy I can't understand a word, which is probably just as well.  

2135
Tuned in at 0152utc, I hear nothing but a bit of static. R8 & dipole. (edit) at 0215utc hear what sounds like Roy Orbison under the low noise level. (2nd edit) Hear SSTV/FAX at 0238utc.  

2136
Heard ID from DJ, fair sig, R8 & dipole. Now hearing what sounds like Jimi Hendrix, signal decreased to poor/weak.
(important edit) OOPS! It's Radio Free Euphoria. My mistake. At first I thought it was RFW. Sorry.
(edit) Freq drifted up to 6932 as of 0124utc.

Tuned in at 0107utc, fair/poor sig with static, heavy metal tune, fade during ID then heard "nine minutes past one o clock", RF-4900 and dipole.

2141
Just barely detect carrier in ssb mode. Using CB antenna because it's farther away from 2400/4160 3 phase primary which is heavily laden with fresh wet snow and making ton of static. Also my dipole is sagging halfway to ground under heavy wet "partly cloudy". (just kidding, they predicted it)

2142
Tuned in at 2315utc, hear weak poor signal, had to switch to my CB antenna which is farther away from the 2400/4160 3 phase primary which is laden with fresh wet heavy snow and making much static. Also using the noise blanker in my R8. (edit) at 2333 hear very weak siren.  

2143
At 2244utc, barely hear weak bits of audio under massive 3 phase static from the 2400/4160 primary due to fresh snowfall. Also, my dipole is sagging halfway down to the ground under heavy wet snow. (There is a 20 pound weight at the tree termination after the rope goes through a pulley at the tree) Also there is a 34kv line a block away feeding the substation 1½ blocks away and that can cause static too.

2144
Tuned in at 0028utc, poor weak signal not up to previous standards, heard blues tune sung by woman, R8 & dipole. (edit) signal improved somewhat later in broadcast. SSTV/FAX at 0108utc. Off at 0110utc.

2145
Tuned in at 2345utc, weak at or below noise level, hear bass note beat of EDM (electronic dance music), RF-4900 & dipole. (EDM is a term that I got from the PBS program "Soundbreaking")
