Just put the snow shovel away and came in to hear PRB at 2130 UTC with a superb signal here on 6924.7 KHZ AM. Song by lady singer ending then Charlie L with mention of 2012? Christmas show and some shoutouts.

2142 UTC Charlie L, then R&B tune by man singer
2146 UTC OFF

Nice to hear you again PRB! Hope the snow didn't pile up too much out Boston way. We got maybe 8-10 inches here in Springfield. Turned out to be a lot of Weather Channel hype!

Very interesting to know that the origin of the term "radio hooligan" can be credited to the work of a magician....seems that the magicians are still working their magic, much to the delight of us pirate radio listeners!
(Reading further into this on the internet, it seems that Nevil was also the son of a magician, John Nevil Maskelyne, who among other things, is credited with the invention of the pay toilet  8))

 :) Nice to hear you Boombox Radio! Tuned in at 1247 UTC on 6924.6 KHZ AM and there was this booming AM signal to go along with the snow that's starting to pile up outside here in Western MA! We have about 3-4 inches already and it doesn't look like it will let up anytime soon. Hmmm, I was going to do some shoveling just now, but I think I'll kick back and listen to Boombox and maybe get my feet limbered up ;D

1345 UTC Not the usual Breakfast with Boombox, but I just finished up a couple of English muffins with peanut butter....time to head out to shovel the snow. I'll leave the cassette running and pick up on the rest of the show later. Thanks BBR! Love those morning shows!

EDIT Listened back on the last 45 minutes just now and signal held up nicely at S9 here. Slick ID's...Boombox Radio on....Sirius FM, On Demand, Facebook, etc ;)

General Radio Discussion / Re: YHWH - 12/17 update
« on: January 24, 2015, 0357 UTC »
The musical composition played on the YHWH broadcasts was one of the eeriest sounding things I had ever heard in my life. It was kinda scary...a psychedelic raga played on an electric sitar if my ears serve me right. The op claimed the song was called "Days of Hard Life" by the Canadian band Lace. Only problem is the band LACE is a C&W group. The song by LACE is called "Life Is Hard". None of the lyrics match.
"Life Is Hard"-LACE
If I wanted it easy I'd a been gone by now
If I thought it was simple I'd have figured it out
But this thing called love takes everything that I've got
I'm not sure what it is but I'm sure what it's not
'Cause baby you and I got different ways of saying the same thing 'cause

Love is hard from start to finish
And if you love you gotta put your whole heart in it
And if it's right you'll know in a minute
Doin' things you never thought you could
Love is hard, but baby life is good

We can say things that cut to the bone
We want to be together but we want to be alone
Sometimes it seems we're on different tracks
We might walk away but we'll always come back
Baby you and me got different ways of saying the same thing
We both know

Love is hard from start to finish
And if you love you gotta put your whole heart in it
And if it's right you'll know in a minute
Doin' things you never thought you could
Love is hard, but baby life is good

Oh, so good

Love is hard from start to finish
And if you love you gotta put your whole heart in it
And if it's right you'll know in a minute
Doin' things you never thought you could
Love is hard, but baby life is good

Love is hard
Life's so good
Love is hard
Life's so good
Love is hard
Life's so good
Love is hard
Life's so good

It's been there since at least 0015 UTC when I first noticed it with varying degrees of signal strength. No audio at any time, but it is still audible as a carrier only at 0205 UTC

Here's a couple of pics of some vintage WW2 direction finders made by Stewart Warner. The first one is the BC470D and the second one is the BC1003. I wonder if they could be retrofitted with SDR technology?

2318 UTC Instrumental tune-Dutch?
2322 UTC C&W tune-Lady Singer (Good signal but moderate noise and fading here)
