I wrote about this more on my blog, but Hobby Broadcasting Radio show #1 is done. It's scheduled to be aired on WBCQ's 5130-kHz transmitter on Thursday November 17 from 11-12 PM EST (November 18 from 0400-0500 UTC).

This show is primarily an interview with Brian Penney (longtime pirate listener and also the pirate radio columnist for NASWA), where we also talk about Halloween stations and manage to squeeze in some clips from stations on that weekend.

The plan is for HB Radio to be on the air every third Thursday of the month at this time on 5130 kHz. I'm not sure what the coverage is like for 5130, and I don't yet have it online. Let me know if you'd like to hear it, but can't.

If you hear show #1, did it sound like something you'd want to listen to each month? If not, is there anything we could do to make it better?

Fair signal with Iron Butterfly "In-A-Gadda-Davida"

Sounds great, 100% copyable & no fading

Huge signal with opera music

"This is Papa Alpha Romeo Nancy" repeated a few X by a female computer voice. Fair/good signal

Excellent sgnal with looping audio bits

Excellent signal with Gary Glitter, Billy Joel, Steve Miller, etc.

Sounds great in FM. Nice to finally try it on the R8. ZZ Top "Sharp Dressed Man" right now

VG signal

VG signal

Excellent signal with instrumental guitar music

Fair signal. Too bad it's not better because Voice of the Abnormal is always fun to hear on Halloween

Another excellent signal from Sycko here. He mentioned the great show & signal from X-FM over kinda spooky piano music

Huge signal with Steve Miller "Take the Money & Run"

Big signal here, but I'm just posting mention of it now because I've been running around between radios & computers
