Okay signal into Northern VT. Just using a portable with built in telescopic whip, but sounds good. Couldn't copy at all until Wolverine graciously moved to  6950.

0032 Free Your Mind, En Vogue
0036 Always on my Mind, Willie Nelson
- Usually Airspy HF+/SDR Console V3.1
- After the tree guys left, now have a 125 ft wire that goes up to the west from 12 ft to 40ft., then a stretch SE that drops to 20ft termination. I should probably just say "longwire" and not worry about it. Miss that tree.
- Sometimes Sangean ATS-909X with whip and/or stock reel and/or YouLoop
- Remote SDRs only used when signal not present at home QTH, and always noted
- Shazam only used to ID music released after 1992. Mostly.
eQSLs to bfrederi1@verizon.net much appreciated

Tuned in at 0033utc on Barrington Hills IL sdr with fair/poor S9 to S9+10 signal, pop/rock tunes I can't ID, was co-channel with Wolverine until Wolverine moved to 6950usb at 0018utc, at 0036 Willie Nelson "you were always on my mind", 
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Wolverine was on 6960 USB before the AM station came down over the top. That is jamming....period. Nobody owns a frequency. Some growing up is in order here. Don't care who likes or dislikes what I say.


Ditto , isnt friday night your usual night Bs ????

SOOOO Sorry!!  Apologies to Wolverine...we had no intention of overlapping.  The frequency was clear up to 30 seconds before we powered up.  Once a month or two we get a chance to rebroadcast on the weekend...usually with different antenna and power settings to compare propagation and modulation and to reach an audience that can't listen on Friday nights.

As soon as we learned there was a problem, we switched to LSB and prepared to move to another frequency.  Just as we were ready to move, Wolverine did instead.  So, we went back to AM with our tails tucked between our legs.

AGAIN, WOLVERINE:  VERY VERY SORRY!!!  Thank you for working it out and sorry for the inconvenience.

Still Ballsmacker?  Switched to AM a few minutes ago.  Fair reception with Fuck Off by Tierra Whack (!).  Stronger than 6950 USB at the same time.  Switched back to AM at 00:47:30 again....more difficult to copy at this early hour off the NW coast of North America...Walt in Masset, BC

And back on USB (the better choice) at 00:49 UTC
