Weak here at or below noise level from 0048 UTC tune-in. Signal improved for a bit at 0050 UTC with heavy metal tune. Signal gone at 0054, not sure if sign off or below noise.
0100 UTC Weak carrier but no audio...strong pesky cochannel LSB so best in USB

Weak signal at mostly threshold level 0015 UTC tune-in with rapid fading and just too much noise to get any copy. Sometimes audio rising above the noise, but tough listen. Nice to see you back Andy! Maybe better prop conditions next time.

Very weak here at 0001 UTC tune-in with UNID rock tune. S2-S3 at peaks, but mostly threshold, sometimes fading under the noise floor.
0004 UTC "Hysteria"-Def Leppard
0007 UTC Either signed off or signal went south!

Channel Z here with solid S9 signal and great audio on about 6150.5 KHZ AM since 0024 UTC with songs, Channel Z ID's..op Andy Walker
{I had deleted the details below the night of the broadcast...restored now}
0027 UTC+ Supertramp?
0038 UTC Big Ben Chimes, and "This is London" into rundown of upcoming music program...
(seems to be some "whirring fan" QRM throughout the broadcast)
0108 UTC "Sultan"-Neil Young and the Squires!!!! Never thought I'd hear this on the radio! Neil's pre-Buffalo Springfield days! Thanks Andy!
0111 UTC "That'll Be the Day"-Lennon/McCartney first record
0114 UTC "What Are We Going To Do"-Davy Jones from 1965
0117 UTC "Close the Door"-
0120 UTC "I Can Hear Music"-early Queen cover of the Beach Boys tune
0124 UTC Andy says "broadcasting across the Eastern Seaboard...Channel Z...special QSL to" (Blue Ridge Summit address)
{Signal best using USB since about 0115 UTC}
{Great music show of earliest tunes by famous artists! Much appreciated here tonight Andy!}

At 2337 UTC tune-in, I get at best S3 above an S2 noise floor. Can hear music and announcer, but tough copy.
{In my reception report to them this past weekend, I referred to them as Radio Powerline....hey Radio Powerliner operator...I didn't mean it!!!}

Getting a fairly solid carrier here, but audio is at noise level around 2330 UTC tune in. Prop is lousy tonight!

I have this at 6935 KHZ spot on at 2336 UTC tune-in with a man and child vocal duet on a folk song with bizarre lyrics!

Killer signal here at 0015 UTC tune-in with Sinatra and "Fly Me to the Moon"
0017 UTC "I Get a Kick Out of You"-Sinatra
0020 UTC "Luck Be A Lady"-Sinatra
0025 UTC "The Best is Yet to Come"-Sinatra
0027+ UTC ID..."This is Chairman of the Board Radio"...."Hope you like it" and off abrupt!
Thanks for the show and the killer audio! Please come back again soon!

Just got this in the email box! Thanks Steve...very much appreciated! I assume a USA relay....hope to hear direct from the UK some day!
{Tip of the old pirate hat to the relay station!}
{Genuine Pescadore approved fish and a side order of my favorite vegetable!}

S5 here at 2306 UTC with techno and then strange sounding aborigine electronica music. S5 over S3 noise floor with very little fading.
Still listening, but I can't ID any of the songs....I don't think I've ever been able to ID the songs in the at least 4 loggings this year....I must be getting old.

Sign on just after Bangalore Poacher 1/10th khz lower with strange music. S5 signal with fades and pesky QRM. Audio seems ok to me here, but best in USB to avoid the fishies....
Having the NRD-515 audio through a 7 band graphic equalizer into my stereo takes some of the warts out of bad audio!

Fair to good S5 signal here at 2237 UTC tune in marred by pesky QRM on LSB. Best in USB with usual zany program of strings of numbers, nonsense ads, and the Lincolnshire Poacher IS. I love this station!
2244 UTC Strange commentary ending with "Please Master, Please Master" into Morse code, LP IS at 2245 UTC and off...I had them on 6925.1 KHZ. Something signed on just after this on 6925 KHZ.

QSLs Received / RADIO ECHO ONE eQSL FEB 16, 2014 6955 AM

Received an eQSL from Echo One for a follow up report for reception on 6955 AM of Programme 24 on February 26, 2014. Also sent along a programme guide. THANKS ECHO ONE! QSL will not be posted due to mature subject matter!

Finally I get to hear this! Good copy at 1938 UTC tune in with occasional deep fades, peaking at S5. Man announcer clearly is a zealot....numerous mentions of YHVH {actually, nobody really knows what the correct vowels are...it has been established by linguistic scholars that A and E are the most likely for the time period}.
This announcer has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Old Testament of Biblical proportions!
"He who pronounces the Name with its own letters has no part in the world to come!"

If anyone wants to take a look around Tenerife for the shortwave transmitter, here's a really cool coverage map of Horizon FM. Personally, I would start in the south and work my way north!
