UNID Old Time NBC Radio Show 0457 UTC 23 Feb 2013
« on: February 23, 2013, 1740 UTC »
Weak at first, S3 or so, but the signal got better over time.
Sounded like it start with some sort of old time radio program, with a rather excited OM.
S7 by around 0512z. I could hear two OMs talking, laugh track in background, so again it sounded like an old time radio show.
Music around 0517z, one or two YLs singing, with a 30s or 40s sound.
The carrier went off at 0518z, then back back on a minute later. Looks like the transmitter switched to USB during this period.
Another old time radio show, a YL and OM heard, again with laughter in the background.
"Goodnight" and into music at 0524z. Mention of National Broadcasting Company? Three tones, the NBC chimes?
Carrier off.

Happened to still be up during this broadcast - same details as Chris. Audio with fading conditions ranged from in the noise to easy copy at times.
