Huh? / Re: Jack Bruce, bassist of 60ís band Cream, dies at 71
« on: October 25, 2014, 2139 UTC »
I was just coming of age when I heard "Sunshine of Your Love" for the first time and the riff has been running through my head hundreds of times over the years :) Jack was the one who wrote and did lead vocals for the song. Eric Clapton overshadows the other members of Cream, but Jack Bruce was a phenomenal bass guitarist and not only wrote some of Creams best songs, but also "Theme For An Imaginary Western", which was done up really nicely by Leslie West & Mountain. I read somewhere that Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce had an adversarial relationship on stage over the years. It is too bad that Jack Bruce never got the commercial success in his solo efforts after the breakup of Cream. A somber tip of the hat to one of Rock & Roll's royalty :(

 Really great to hear you tonight on the top of the medium wave band from start to finish! Great audio and reception was generally excellent with the occasional fade into the noise. Happy that the new antenna was such a success and hopefully you will be back soon! Thanks for the entertainment tonight!

Very good signal here at 2357 UTC with Soviet Anthem, then DJ Dickweed chatting about testing into the dummy load but was actually on the air! Oh well, sometimes the dummy load is the space between Sir Skipmunk's ears ;D. Short chat about the recent WBCQ program, into a song by Tom Veck(?)

Shortwave Broadcast / Re: CFRX Back On 6070
« on: October 23, 2014, 2321 UTC »
Booming in here at 2315 UTC with cochannel interference from somebody else in the background. Nice to hear CFRX again!

Despite the high band noise and loud static bursts from an approaching storm, I'm getting fair to good audio from Magic at 2357 UTC with "Just The Two Of Us"-Grover Washington Jr & Bill Withers, into U2 at 0000 UTC Oct 23 :)
0011 UTC "The Heat Is On"-Glen Frey

11351
Rising above the noise here at 0020 UTC with some thump, thump techno music....I think there was an XLR8 ID at 0022 UTC. Tough copy tonight, but mostly above the high noise and static levels.

QSLs Received / Radio Tidalwave eQSL
« on: October 21, 2014, 2206 UTC »
Just when you think that all hope is gone, the long awaited QSL finds it's way into the Skipmuck inbox! Thank you very much EJ!!! I am a truly happy to get this for my Pirate Wall of Fame ;D Hope to hear you again in the "Skip" Zone!

11353
Hearing this weakly at 2345 UTC....eerie sounding no matter who plays this tune :o

11354
Started off with really bad reception...signal buried in the noise and lots of pesky QRM on LSB. I tuned away, and when I came back at 0120 UTC, I was getting this killer S9+ signal with perfect wideband audio. Nice to hear the show in this quality after straining through the noise on 1720 earlier :)
Thanks Dr. Benway....I'll be listening as I fall asleep...ahhh, Edgar Winters classic...Frankenstein :o
EDIT:As I was falling asleep last night, the signal took a nosedive at 0153 UTC :(
