Killer signal here with kick arse metal tune...S9+ with excellent AM audio seemingly spot on 6925 KHZ at 0028 UTC tune-in...sure is different than the WW2 swing tune on today's earlier show! The peskies are gunning their motors in a futile effort to escape!
0034 UTC DJ Dick Weed and Co giving the business to Brother Stair...dedicated the next song to him
0036 When Heaven Comes Down-Dokken
0046 T-shirt plug, then into chatter about the Bud lite commercial and Whatever. Off abrupt after email offer of the QRM program, "Do Whatever...QRM"
{Another off the wall show Mr. Dickweed & Co...there was one stubborn pesky weakly heard under the QRM...think he was preaching in Spanish....he didn't stand a chance!}

Heard both broadcasts here, but my PC was in use for another purpose at the time of broadcast...sent email report to whypradio@gmail.com just before posting this log. My report as follows...

If indeed they are able to log the signal out there on some distant extrasolar planet, I want the plans for their antenna...
 Hey...I just remembered that episode of the "Outer Limits" where the guy contacts an extraterrestrial. It was one of the early episodes...I was maybe 8 or 9 when it was broadcast and was into shortwave at that time. My parents bought me a telescope for Christmas that year.

Received in 43 days a full data eQSL for an email report for reception of the "Tip & Elvis Christmas Show" on December 26, 2013 from 0655-0712 UTC on 6210 KHZ. The QSL is a picture of the transmitting tower and equipment. Broadcast stated as 500 watts! Thank you very much Tip & Elvis!!! I really appreciate this reply!
Update 2/10/14...When I downloaded the eQSL, it was a 5.4 Meg microsoft doc file. In order to convert to a JPEG, I had to do a print screen, then paste in PAINT, crop, save as jpeg. I accidently shifted the verie details on the template so they were covered by the antenna mast! It appears that the QSL is a composite of top, bottom, and verie details. So much for Windows XP...corrected QSL reposted below.
