First time hearing you, hope it's not the last time enjoying the show...thanks!

S6 on an S5 floor, moderate fading.

Has been playing music since 0035.  Was able to ID "I'm On the Outside" by Staind at 0045.  YL computer IDs at 0042, 0050, and 0054.
Was only able to definitely hear the last one.

0102 Nice ID by YL, "Thanks for listening", and back to the music.
0118 Some SRV trackage.
0151 Some Pink Floyd now
0204 Final ID, addy, and off

About S7 on an S5 floor, but high storm noise and fading.  Very nice audio when in a peak.

Thanks Machine; very good to hear you again, and enjoyed the show!

Have been hearing an AM here since around 0019 playing music which I haven't been able to ID.  S6/S5 floor with lots of QRN from nearby storms.  0029 thought I heard some OM talk.  0032 went o/c and 0033 off.

Seems to be around 6930.35.

Shortwave Broadcast / Sudan SRTC 7200AM 0216UTC 16Oct2012
« on: October 16, 2012, 0245 UTC »
0216 Quran recits
0231 OM singing phrase in AA repeated several times followed by some dead air
0233 OM talk in AA, very poor modulation
0234 1/2 minute of dead air followed by ID; only caught partial"...Jamhurriyah...Sudan"
0235 into local music with percussion and also occasional oud
0245 Into AA OM talk in much more informal style

Not bad at times, if you don't mind the constant switching from USB to LSB to avoid ARO activity

0131 Was watching something else when a USB fired up on 6925, and I caught the end of a phonetics tx which ended around 0132.
It then fired up on 6950USB, and I was able to get the recorder going in time.

"P A P I X S standby message follows."  Message.  "This is Sulphuric out"   

Audio:    http://www.mediafire.com/?897yl5752serllx

Heard again 6925 at 0148z

I am seeing a weak wobbly carrier on this freq right now.  From time to time it seems like there might be audio in there, but it's hard to tell.

Anyone have this?

Shortwave Broadcast / Zambia Natl BC Corp 6165AM *0240UTC 14Oct12
« on: October 14, 2012, 0304 UTC »
0240 Carrier on and right into Call of the Fish Eagle IS
0251 NA by military band
0252 OM talk in apparent EE, but in a very low voice which was hard to hear.  Cud not pull ID.  Sounds like pgm notes followed.
0255 Soppy Western-sounding pop ballad.
0258 OM ment "Radio 2" several times
0300 pips, drums, and into EE nx.  Low voice and modulation made it tough to hear, but several ments "Zambia"
0305 YL promo for "Radio 2" and into some ZimPop

Fair at S6 on S4 noise, some t-storm QRN.

Shortwave Broadcast / Radio Tanzania Zanzibar 11735AM 2003UTC 13Oct12

Most likely the one here in with a very good signal this afternoon.

2002 Tuned in just to the end of some YL talk, and no time to verify the language.  No ID at this time.
2003 Program of some really sweet contemporary Taraab.
2021 YL talk in Swahili, no ID heard, nor ment of the FM they sometimes relay
2022 Continuation of music program; neat Taraab on a rumba beat
2039 YL rapid-fire talk in Swahili with def ment of "Tanzania"
2040 Back to music; old-school now (18+ minutes long)
2100 Several "Spice FM" promos; running over sked
2102 Now into some Muziki wa Dansi mixed w/ OM talk
2117 Song by band which is definitely DDC Mlmani Park Orchestra
2123 off abruptly

Consistently solid S8-S9 reception and the best I have ever heard RTZ.
