0020 sig picking up now at abt +.110; poss ID by OM that sounded like the LR op, but a static crash boogered up the ID

Thanks Liquid!

Started a recording at 2211 of an AM on abt 6925.04.  Essentially heard dance mx fading up and down until s/off.  OM talk and poss ID at 2236z; it might have been Liquid Radio?  Freq drifted throughout the show, so a strong het by s/off.

I needed another antenna rotator, and had been shopping around.  The RS 15-1245 - renowned as a POS - would fill the bill as the rotator head was going to be modified anyway (shorten the gear train, replace the sync motor, and add a position feedback pot).  This had been trending at around $45 lately (down from the usual $60) and since I was going to just use an old gift card balance for the purchase, no worries.

Just got back from the local RS, and found out that the 1245 was on sale for $30, and was just one item on an 18 page list of 50% off items.  I was able to get 2 for a net cash outlay of $14...score!

This might be a good time to check out RS online for your needs!
