Spring Sucks:

   Thursday I went into the basement to get a wrench to take the dead battery out of my truck and buy a new on. Boy what a surprise there was about an inch of water over most of my basement floor. Well I forgot about the truck and bought a replacement sump pump for the twenty something year old one. With work I only was able to start the major salvage effort today. Lucky that most of our stuff was in plastic bins but there were some things left on the floor that suffered.
   As I bent under my work bench to check for problems I saw the box that held the new baby bottle sterilizer that we purchased so so long ago.  And I got an immediate lump in my throat and tears welled up in my eyes as I had a flash back to a happier time. Yes I knew what that box signified to me and how dear it was to me. Even before I read the label that listed all of the contents I remembered what was in there.  Yes copies of my old radio club journals, to be specific:

DX Reporter: 6/82 to 9/87
ACE: 2/85 to 11/86; 1/87 to 9/87
Frendx: 1/87 to 9/87
Speedx; 1/87 to 9/87
NNRC: 11/79 to 9/87 

   What a terrible loss. Now for the reason for the post; should I try and dry them out, is it worth the effort? To be honest an hour ago I wanted to chuck them all but now Iím leaning to trying to dry them out. Let me know what you think. One last thing I donít have a sewer so it is contaminated by regular old fashioned skanky ground water.
   As I carried my drowned memories up the basement stairs I passed the box that held the baby basinet that my wife wanted me to put back into storage as our grandson being a year old is too big to use any more. And yes she placed it on the high point of the basement floor, it sat there high and dry. Imagine that something that could be easily replaced safe and my memories slowly dying in my arms. What was she thinking?
   Well off to buy another floor fan and de-humidifier.

Just turned the radio on to an S7 signal and country and western music.
Thanks for the id, I didn't catch it, in and out of the room.

Station playing some type of metal music. At 0128 This Is Radio QSL repeated three times adn back into music.
Changed the station name to unid as I have heard another station id, not sure who it could be.

Thanks for the ids, I'm still having trouble making out the id.

I saw a posting in a chat room for this station and thought I would give it a try. A Japanese news agency transmitting from Singapore. Not bad for a late Friday afternoon.

Smash Radio came on the air right after Radio BlAH BLAH BLAH signed off. The signal is weak here with a lot of static but mostly playing music. Here is a SSTV image that was broadcast at the beginning of their program.

The SSTV image from the end of the broadcast.

RML playing music now with  an S5 signal above a S3 noise floor.
Now talking about Shepard's pie, now I'm hungry, just said that they would play one more.
Listening in ECSS LSB cleaned up the interference nicely.

Someones broadcasting different sound effects. Started at 0334 and now (0339) seem off. S7 here.
Back at 0342 with what sounds like Godzilla sounds, seem sporadic with several minutes between some of the sounds.
Now 0347 playing songs
0348: Star Wars Cantina song
0350: Batman
0416 almost totally lost in the static now.

At 0445 a woman started talking, not sure but I believe she had an id but couldn't copy it. Now she is talking about the conditions "out there"
0450 sounds like speech inversion interfering with the signal.

Off at 1403 mid song.

0435 to 0440 the song People Are Crazy with an S7 signal. "From The Blues Traveler" and off. Please more than one song at a time.

I guess he did, I have to tune in sooner.
