Thank you for a great program Northwoods Radio OP!!! Good tunes and great audio made for a pleasant night at the radio!

Thank you Herbert! Signal disappeared just after 0030 UTC. I will listen back on my recording and maybe I can hear the greeting! Thanks for the show tonight here on the other side of the big pond! I don't hear many Dutch stations using USB...hope to hear you again! :)

Edit at 1500 UTC May 18, 2014 {I listened back on my cassette recording and unless these tired old ears are deceiving me, you gave me a shoutout at around 0012-0013 UTC during one of the Dutch songs you were playing! I could hear
"Springfield...USA...Skipmuck". Also the lady announcer with ID just before 0000 UTC said "This is Radio Flying Dutchman from the Netherlands". I still have no clue as to the names of the songs you were playing....guess I'll have to read up my Dutch music a bit! Again, thanks for the shoutout, Herbert!}  ;D

Just above the noise floor here with SSB QRM at 2356 UTC with UNID music...clear ID by lady announcer at 2359+ UTC..."Hello, this is Radio Flying Dutchman....", into unid song by lady singer. Signal picking up a bit at 0010 UTC during another UNID song by lady singer. My first logging of this!
0011 UTC Man announcer talkover unid Europop tune with man singer
Not a single song that I even remotely recognize, but man announcer talking over song that started at 0026 UTC, with ID's at 0027 UTC..."This is Radio Flying Dutchman....." and again less than a minute later. My kingdom for Shazam!

Solid S9+ here with great audio since 2320 UTC...sounds like a live show tonight! Hey Mr. Weed and Co....sounds like you guys already had a jump start....be careful with those cables....they can wreak havoc with the mid-life crisis! Nice selection of tunes that I've not heard before....Captain Picard says Make it So  ???

Thank you Mr. Farley! I appreciate the link....I'll download overnight if all goes well....with my dial-up it will take awhile! My reception was marginally better than the 10 minutes of audio posted by Sealord (thanks for that...nice to compare!). Also, thanks again ROR...great production and some Neil tunes you just don't hear on the radio!  :)

Nice clear S8 signal here at 2215 UTC tune-in with James Stewart talking about flying an airplane, into Tommy Dorsey instrumental. Minor fading. Mr. Stewart seems to be having a great time here! Live time checks, on the spot decisions what to play....that's what I call a spontaneous broadcast! Mairzy oats and dozy doats.......
2323 UTC song "I'd Like to be a Pirate", Star Spangled Banner, then off 2325 UTC
Thanks for the "oldies" show Jimmy Stewart!

(In and out of the high noise level here...damn, I'm not getting all of these good tunes!)

0156 UTC Vampire Blues off "On the Beach"
0159 UTC Rundown of songs played, "Neil Young Show for Skipmuck", shoutouts to HFU posters, email address and ID"s then off at 0201 UTC
Hey ROR crew....Thank you very much!!! I wish the prop was better, and that damn noise was tough...but thanks for answering my "Request"!!!! Great tunes from the Archive 2 period....please repeat the show some time!
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Weak here at 2339 UTC with tunes by Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Van Halen, sudden jump in signal to S7 at 0001 UTC

Thanks for the broadcast tonight Radio Kawa op!

Sign-on with Soviet Anthem at 2339 UTC into "Remote Broadcast" show. Music request for Chris Lobdell. Nice S8 signal here with wide band audio.
0022 UTC Song "Whatever"-Oasis ( Hey, DJ DW...how about a theme program with songs using the word Whatever! It could be in the title or maybe even prominently in the song....just an idea....)

Thanks ROR! I am not worthy of this as I strained my ears through the noise for about 15 minutes or so and didn't know it was RaveOnRadio! Much appreciated though! :)

When I saw Chris Smolenski's posting of the Radio Mistletoe QSL from a reception on Christmas Eve, I thought that maybe my report on the 26th would also be answered too. Sure enough today I received QSL #033 for my report along with a nice letter from Kris Kringle! Thanks Mr. Kringle! You have always been a favorite of mine since I was a little kid! I don't usually post the details of the letters to any great degree, but this one is great! As follows-------------------------------------------
Has it been that long since Christmas?  We're deeply sorry and apologize for not replying sooner.  Because of global climate change, the landing strip for the sleigh had melted and we got stranded on Svalbard.  It wasn't until just a few days ago that a Norwegian fishing trawler was able to get us back to the North Pole.
Attached you'll find a QSL card confirming your reception.  We hope you like it and find its way into your collection.
This Christmas has been an unusual one here at Radio Mistletoe.  Our Program Director decided to try a contest during this years show in which the first letter in the titles of several songs spelled out the answer to the contest.  The listeners who got the correct answer would receive QSLs.  "Happy Christmas (War is Over)" was one of the songs, but was erroneously titled "So This is Christmas" in the record archive, according to the PD.  So we decided it was only fair to send QSLs to everyone who sent in correct reports.  Also, we found out that there was a bogus (fake) Radio Mistletoe in one of the chat rooms during Christmas.  This was very disheartening to us to know that there are unscrupulous people out there eager to mislead others during the most joyous time of the year.
Now that the Christmas holiday season has long since passed, we're glad to say that our broadcast has been another successful one.  We couldn't have done it without the hard work and dedication of everyone here at the station.  And we thank you, the listener, for tuning in and writing.  A special thanks to those who were kind enough to send us pictures, postcards, and moreso the recordings of your reception.  Its nice to see who is listening and how well you receive us.
As of now, we're planning on going on the air again this coming Christmas if all goes well.  Mark it on your calendar.
Again, thanks for writing.
Until next Christmas....
(P.S.  Thanks for the very nice report Chris.  We are not a European Pirate station.  Our transmitters and studio are located at the North Pole. )

Equipment / Re: HF Receiving Antenna Myths
« on: May 12, 2014, 0009 UTC »
I have been using an MFJ-901B Versa Tuner for several years. I've used it from 1986-1989, and having returned to shortwave listening after 24 years, have been using it since August of 2013. My antennas have always been random longwires of various lengths and I have found the tuner to be an excellent way of getting the most from the longwire! When tuning from let's say 6925 KHZ to 21460 KHZ, I have to radically change the settings on the MFJ. I've actually checked the effectiveness of the tuner by removing it and hooking the longwire directly to the NRD-515....some frequencies are attenuated and others aren't. I firmly believe it works well for matching a longwire with a receiver. Before the NRD-515 I used it with a Yaesu FRG-7 and it also worked in a similar fashion.
