Radio Free Whatever 6950 USB 2306 UTC 1 Aug 2022
« on: August 01, 2022, 2309 UTC »
S5 to S6 @ 2306 sign-on with Russian Anthem
2308 - silence
2309 - Dick Weed on the microphone.  Sounds a little fuzzy at times (maybe some RF getting into the mic?).
2312 - "Speeding 72" Momma
2315 - transmitter sounding better now, but then suddenly off.  Maybe working on the signal?
2318 - back on with "Zone of Control" by Torpa [according to Shazam]
2320 - S7 now, Dick Weed on the mic and going to replay the Linda Lindas, "Talking To Myself"
2330 - sounding much better now that the ATU has been taken out.  Dick Weed with shoutouts [thanks!]
2331 - "Red Sun" Big Wild
0014 - still solid S7, sounding good with "Self Control" Lion
0029 - S7 to S8 with "La Isla Bonita" Large Plants
0131 - still going strong, S7 to S8 with Dick Weed on the mic, about to wrap things up


Thanks for the show!
