4185 USB
0222z MJ, Thriller. No joy via the home rx, but fair to very good on various SDRs, best via MD SDR with V-beam aimed toward Europe. Presumably some lobes off the back of that antenna picking up some US stations.
0247z During extended MJ Thriller remix, Sycko Radio voice ID, and some kinda data burst that writes the ID in the SDR waterfall. I've seen screencaps of that trick before but this was the first time I've watched it appear while monitoring.
0309z Sycko Radio IDs
0330z Said pre-recorded program they'd planned to air was lost during computer update, so tonight's show was improvised. And off...

Audio good enough that I opened the SDR filter bandwidth to about 3.5, to open up the bass and high end. Sounds great against the very low background QRN via this SDR. My own home receiver can't come close.

"Adam's Family Theme" at 0234z on to pop and rock music. SINPO 45334. ~S8 with higher peaks. Moderate band noise and static crashing, but still a decent to good copy. Plenty of bass.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

Just set up my new horizontal loop this afternoon & hooked up the connections now. Sycko is sounding *so much better* with this antenna here than the 48m inverted V.
