0046 I'll be there... music, LSB, could be a pest playing music, LSB QRM. Music quite clear  S4
0049 This could be the pests out-pesting each other, I suppose.

North American Shortwave Pirate / 6924.4 AM 2350 UTC Jul 8 RFW

2352  Stefan and Dick Weed discussing Jackie Gleason
2353  ID  RFW, RPM   decent signal, S9 a little fading
0002  ID  More 'elevator music'
( there is a class 2 (?) radio flare event being reported on Ionoprobe)
0006  Jackie Gleason  orchestra. Dick Weed RFW ID
0013  RPM mood music still going. Very mellow.. reminds me of watching curling , for some reason.
0019  Record bag vs record stack !  Al Goodman & orchestra

Thanks Dick and Stefan.. always enjoy the show !

0048  Version of Night Train
0058 Sign off, email address DickweedDJ@gmail.com

0111 Modulation suddenly came up.. can hear it better on USB.."Summertime"  S5. Missed an ID but heard "something radio"
( Thanks  Chris)
0119  This seems to be an under modulated signal. I can hear the modulation but it's distorted. Reasonable strength so sounds like transmitter needs some TLC. Easier to make some sense on SSB, but it's still hard sledding.

0038 Signing on RFW Dick Weed
0041  S5-6   I am getting this better on USB, but looks like an AM signal  
0043  ID RFW
0051 Pseudo disco ?  OOOOH KAY...
0055.. I often find RFW signal is worth getting the R390 warmed up for some improved fidelity, but not happening this evening.. noise is bad. The DSP tools on the IC7700 doing a great job though.
0126  Off

Thanks for the show and fun listening !

0005  Music, S4-5, rapid fading
0020 Can't say ths very clear in Halifax, struggling with intelligibility.

0021   AM here, with QRM , maybe from a pesty.
0028   Music.. but not really clear.
0030  Must be off, but never really heard enough for an ID

0141  Dick Weed ( and friend, Stephen), monologue ( dualogue ?) with Easter greetings RFW, Good signal, clear.

Thanks guys.. I will remove the question mark !

0144 RFW anthem.. very good  ( really enjoy your show !)
0147  QSL commentary.. excuses.. yeah, excuses.
0150 Lack of pirates comment !
0152 Music show started
HiFi USB signal.. per RFW standards.
0245 Email addr.. great show guys, thanks  ( Rerun.. but I missed it first time around)
0248 Shoutouts... audio is great guys. Hi fi (ve)
0257  Off... always a fun listen.

0100 Popped on with some smooth jazz.  S5, peskie interference

(a bit clearer in USB, can cut the LSB QRM down a little)

« on: April 18, 2014, 2219 UTC »
2215  CW groups of letters, off at 2216. Not a broadcast pirate but probably something covert.

2130.. just coming clear now. Been hearing music for 10 minutes with male DJ voice over. S4, noisy. Sounds a bit like Premier Radio International.
2152 S7 now, music clearer, still no ID, noisy
2205 Dropped back to S4-5, very noisy. Still haven't got an ID. Music techno/dance sort of thing.
