THANKS FOR THE SHOW TONIGHT AMR! What was the name of that psychedelic tune at 0022 UTC?

Would greatly appreciate an eQSL if you happen to read my posting here!

I'm getting S5 UNID music here at 2338 UTC tune-in on somewhere between 6885.7-6885.8 KHZ. Off at 2345 UTC, but back on again 2348 UTC. Very strong het, but signal well above noise level. Off again at 2350 UTC. I was trying to retune when they went off!
On again very briefly at 2353 and about a minute or so later with distorted signal.
2358 UTC On again with dance tune on 6886 KHZ...off again at 0000 UTC!!!
Sounds like someone is testing!

Huh? / Re: How to post eQSL images
« on: March 31, 2014, 2249 UTC »
The biggest problem is getting the eQSL pic under the maximum size allowed for posting! This is 128 kb, with 4 allowed per post. I post my eQSL's via the following method using the PAINT application in Windows. It sounds tedious, but is actually quite simple after you do it a few times. First I check out the size of the downloaded eQSL file. If it is already under 128 kb, and is already a JPEG, as follows:
Download email eQSL attachment to desktop.
Right click on downloaded desktop file and select OPEN WITH. Select PAINT
Go up to File and select Save As from drop down list. Where the box says Save In, select Desktop. Select Save As JPEG. DoubleClick to save. Close out Paint.
Go to Desktop and mouse over the file to see file size. If file is under the max limit for saving on HFU, you are ready to post.
Open up New Entry if QSL not previously posted or Reply if there is already a posting of this QSL.
Below the message box, select Additional Options. Where the link box is, select Browse. Select desktop, find the eQSL file and double click on it. The link should show up in the box. Hit Post and it should come up ok.
If the file is larger than the allowed 128 kb, you can correct this by right clicking on the file and OPEN WITH: PAINT. Click on the IMAGE drop down box and select "Stretch/Skew". Reduce the size by lowering the percentages in the 2 boxes....do them by the same amount! Hit OK, then go up to FILE and drop down to SAVE IN: Desktop and SAVE AS:JPEG. Close out paint and go to desktop. Mouse over to see what the file size is now. If under the max 128 kb, go back to Additional Options and select browse...find the file on desktop and double click...hit SAVE. Then hit POST. It works for me everytime, and with a little bit of finesse you can download an eQSL and in a minute or two tops, you have posted it successfully. Don't forget to Describe the eQSL if NEW ENTRY, and you can also add comments in the message box.

Solid S9 here at 0055 UTC tune-in with long spacey guitar tune, into an UNID garage rock tune at 0101 UTC. Nice audio!
The Poacher strikes again!!! IS at 0106 UTC
Seems to be a pattern here...he plays a couple of songs to get the UNID posting, then the Lincolnshire Poacher IS to get things moving long....at 0010 UTC we have the CW...
0012 UTC Pakistan, Pakistan...now the Poacher is selling cars!
0018 UTC ....www., then LP IS!!!
0026 UTC ...vegetarian...non-vegetarian...please Master, then IS and off

At threshold level here at 0013 UTC tune-in with some C&W music. Too close to the noise floor to make good copy.

I'm getting this rather weak here at 2214 UTC with announcer obsessing over an ancient Caananite deity. In the clear and just above the noise floor. I have nothing against this op, but seriously...anyone can sit behind a microphone and read from parts of the Old Testament while making irritating moral judgements on those of other religious persuasions. Please QSL...regards,

Just came back from an errand and Borderhunter is coming in loud and clear at 1846 UTC with deep fades, but S8 at peaks. A little Dutch music here is always welcome!
1852 UTC "Time After Time"-Cyndi Lauper
Signal varied greatly with some deep fades during the next 3 Europop tunes.
1907 UTC Cover of "Needles and Pins", with op talkover...did I hear someone else talking also?
1912 UTC Thanks for the shoutout during the Hollies medley Borderhunter! I thought I heard somebody else talking there! {The Needles and Pins cover should have been 1907 UTC instead of the 1903 UTC I originally posted....ooops!}. Also shoutouts to others posting on HFU!
Hey Borderhunter, I deleted most of my details, so you don't get any fake reports! I have fun typing them in. Of course, I copy and pasted them to a file for reference! Great show today here and it looks like you really got out today with your signal!
2025 UTC Really pounding in her still with the voice of Johnny Cash!
2038 UTC Signal has really steadied now, with very little fading as before..reading letter from the US from someone with a Dutch name.
2100 UTC Thanks for reading my email on the air!!! The Dutch invasion is alive and kicking!
2116 UTC "Go Now"-Moody Blues (Does this mean you are closing down? I think you've been on almost 3 hours today...a marathon broacast!)
2119 UTC Says will be closing down. Into "Nights in White Satin"-Moody Blues
2127 UTC There's never a bad time to "Roll Out the Barrel"!
2150+ UTC Off after ID's, ad for Summermeeting.

Finally hear this!!! Nothing earlier on 21476, but popping up above noise floor here at 1525 UTC on 21480 LSB with music (Stray Cats?), then at 1526 short announcement by man (ID?) and SEAGULLS!!! Yes, Finally...hoo hoo!
Still, very weak signal....1134 UTC... more SEAGULLS! That little touch really stands out over the noise.
1541-1542 UTC Man announcer, Seagulls and now I get nothing..off?

Very pleased to get this ROR ops! For my anemic posting on HFU....THANK YOU! That's a very impressive pile of wood you got there...hope you don't need to chop that until next winter!

Carrier here at 6925.2 also, fading in and out of the noise floor, but only occasional bits of audio. Fairly large solar event last night has adversely affected the prop here this morning! Off while I was posting this at 1305 UTC!

I get nothing here on 21460, not even a carrier. There is something UNID on 21470 coming in very weak, and Ham ops just below 21450. There was a large solar event last night and prop is lousy this morning! I will listen for a little longer and hopefully I will finally hear you Sly Fox!


Finally ID'd as "Springfield Armory Historical Site" after 2-1/2 months of non stop test loop. The reason I could hear this night and day is because it is only about 3 miles away near downtown Springfield, MA

Headed over here after Appalachia signed off at 0112. Wolverine at S9+10 here with superb USB audio...I can even listen in USB with the 6 KHZ filter! It's swing time tonight I guess...haven't picked up a common thread yet with the names of the songs.... ;D
