Also received here today along with a very nice personal letter for my June 15, 2014 reception. Thank you very much Peter and the FRS team! I am very pleased to get this and look forward to your next broadcast in either late August or in the 2nd half of October!  :)

The sound of the Soviet Anthem now at 0124 UTC, so I get to hear the beginning of the program that I missed! S9 here with almost no fading and no peskies. DJ Dickweed with no Stavin tonight, so he can raid the oldies. Time Warp from 1964, into "She's Not There"-Zombies
0128 UTC "I Should Have Known Better"-Beatles
0130 UTC Clip about Beatlemania, including interviews followed by the Beach Boys (where I came in on the 6924.4 KHZ program)
{Great show, great tunes DJ Dickweed! Time to hit the sack though...3 AM is sooner than I would like it to be :( )


Fair signal here at 0035 UTC tune in with lots of fading...propagation on the bad side tonight! "Mr Lonely"-Bobby Vinton already in progress, followed by "When I Grow Up to Be A Man"-Beach Boys at 0036 UTC
0038 UTC RFW ID, into "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying"-Gerry & The Pacemakers
0041 UTC Radio Caroline clip followed by "Not Fade Away"-Rolling Stones     0044 UTC "World "World Without Love"-Peter & Gordon
0046 UTC "Girl From Ipanema"-Astrid & Gilberto
(Signal really picked up nicely during this time...S9 now with some fading)
0049 UTC "Going Out of My Head"-Little Anthony & the Imperials

{Thanks for the Time Warp back to that magic year when I was 9 years old and ALL the songs on the radio were GOOD! Yes, it was magical... :) )
Hmmm, something happening on 6935 USB...yes, it's the Soviet Anthem!

At threshold level here in Western MA, 2336 UTC tune in with UNID music, 2342 UTC Electronica sounding tune. Signal picking up a bit around 2350 UTC. Relatively quiet band...signal not even moving the S meter.
Audio on songs sounds good at peaks.

Fascinating to watch this update all by itself! Now I have 3 sites to supply me with sufficient information on whether or not it's time to disconnect the antenna (not including the Weather Channel)

http://thunderstorm.vaisala.com/explorer.html (The old reliable standby)

And yes, there is one other method..."stick your head out the window". (Courtesy of James Stewart) Hmmm....not recommended for this kind of weather!

Just reconnected the antenna here after a T-Storm blew through. Tuned in at 2351 UTC to an easy listening tune by lady vocalist, then a Dutch? pop/folk tune at 2353 UTC, interrupted briefly by Man announcer. The T-Storm static is brutal, but the audio is above most of it.
2356 UTC Sounds like "The Old Man Down the Road"-John Fogerty
0003 UTC A low key laid back tune with talkover by man...clear ID as "BBR Radio". The op sounds like the same one as I heard a couple weeks back on 6320 KHZ.
0004 UTC OFF

The funny part of all this is that this behaviour on the ham bands would not be totally out of place on the pirate bands, or better yet in the IRC chat room (last night for instance). I've heard some entertaining animal noises on a few pirate programs, and have read extensively about the backstabbing and backbiting on the former FRN. I was told by a straight and narrow long time ham operator that the pirates didn't bother him as long as they didn't interfere with legal broadcasts.. Some of the good natured swiping in the pirate community is actually entertaining until it gets abusive. I really don't like to see anybody getting busted, but stupidity is stupidity no matter how extensively you overanalyze it. These guys that got busted were warned several times and the FCC gave them just enough rope to hang themselves. I think there is a message here for both pirate ops and listeners to give some thought to.

I'm hearing a distorted signal here...hard to tune but definitely LSB. Sounds like a TV program or something with bits of music and a man talking. Signal off and on. Still on as of 0408 UTC. Time to hit the sack, so i will leave recorder running and hopefully someone can ID this? S5 and well above the noise.

Same here as others....was already in progress when Wolverine closed down...tough copy, but believe I heard the op at 0322 UTC say something about "I'm surrounded by f***ing idiots", unless that was part of the song! Hmmm...

Tuned in to usual killer signal here after end of RFW program!
0245 UTC Dreams-Fleetwood Mac
0249 UTC Sweet Dreams (Are made of this)-Eurythmics
0301 UTC "Running Down A Dream"-Tom Petty
0310 UTC Wolverine Radio echo ID into SSTV

EDIT: Hmmm, didn't notice it last night but this was posting #500. Wolverine Op, you made a Hero out of me ;D

Excellent signal here despite the noise from the T-Storms! Happy that you had a great time in Florida DJ Dickweed....too bad you didn't score....lawyers daughters aren't all that bad...the worst they can do is sue the pants off you! ;D
Thanks for the request and the shoutout...hope you enjoy a bit of the 60's!
0120 UTC Shoutouts to HFU posters (Thanks!) into crazy chat with Assistant Stavin followed by song by the Orwells-Dirty Sheep ooops :-[ Sheets!
0142 UTC ID'd song played by the Cure -Never Enough, then poking around in the hard drive for some Led Zep for Big Al...
0145 UTC Kashmir (good choice!)
0159 UTC Now that's one funky version of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"!
0208 UTC "Rocking In the Free World"-Neil Young (Awesome tune!)
0222 UTC Hmmm...Trash bags that smell like lavender...now that's really talking trash! ;D
0233 UTC ID'd last song..."A Sky Full of Stars"...closing chat, Do Whatever and bye bye.
0235 OFF
{One great show tonight DJ Dickweed and Stavin! The best shows are always when the ops engage the listeners....Thanks for the request for the Velvet Underground...I haven't heard that song since my UMASS days circa 1975....old times were good times!}

Have been following this since Tip & Elvis closedown...barely fading up above the noise and T-storm static. Lots of chat by man announcer...playing Dutch music now at 0016 UTC. Tough copy here.
0023 UTC signal picking up a bit now...Polka time!

Fading up above the noise here at 2253 UTC with "Let It Be"-Beatles followed by David Bowie(?). Lots of T-storms noise here! Man announcer at 2303 UTC and 2305 UTC but too weak to copy.
2309 UTC "Don't Fear The Reaper"-Blue Oyster Cult
2317 UTC "She's Got Legs"-ZZ Top
2325 UTC "Hunk of Burning Love"
2328 UTC Man announcer talkover during "Green Onions"-Booker T & MG's
2333 UTC Mention of 6220 KHZ and email address t.eshow@hotmail.com, then one last song and OFF at 2338 UTC
(Thanks for the entertainment Tip & Elvis op!!! Always nice to hear you from across the big pond!)

Solid S8 here at 0200 UTC on 6925 USB (distorted in AM). Opening announcements into jazz tune at 0202 UTC.
0207 UTC Jazzy version of the Beatles-"From Me to You"
(At times, I can hear this bleeding over on 6930 USB... rather wide signal for Side Band?)

0155 UTC Starting to pick up some threshold talking but negligible on the copy. Right at the noise floor.
0213 UTC I'm sure I just heard a phone ringing....
