0230 UTC-Still no identification of the program or station
0252 UTC-Saying the program goes out over WTWW on shortwave
0254 UTC-Scriptures for America ID, said a 2018 calendar will be available via mail order
0256 UTC-Scriptures for America garbage coming to an end (finally)
0300 UTC-Carrier (no station ID)
0310 UTC-Still no audio
0330 UTC-Still no audio

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

02:45 UTC - Ah, here we go, an S9 ~ S+15 signal with religious program. Looks to be 6 to 8 kHz wide. Sounds good at 6 kHz. One of the facility pictures I was looking at appears that they are using Stereo Tools to shape the audio. I couldn't figure out the radio automation software;
02:50 UTC - Mention of Scriptures for America .org;
02:54 UTC - Mention of the new 2018 calendar coming out;
02:56 UTC - Scriptures for America broadcast wrapping up.
02:59 UTC - Some issues with the playback automation software ... lots of dead air and at 03:30 UTC still dead air. Wow, at that rate, maybe they could give us some free programming slots! I have music that I can stream;
03:30 UTC - Carrier dropped and off the air.

They don't need to id. God knows his own. Let me know if the mic picks up the snakes hissing and rattling?

I heard that too last night, also noticed there was some repeating glitch in the audio that i kept hearing, then again given what was said about how trashed the transmitters there were it could've been the transmitter breaking down.

S9 with the VE7AV KiwiSDR.

0035 UTC-Anti-vaccine moronic garbage (I hope nobody listens to them anymore, I will be listening to WRMI legends now and ignoring these idiots)

Good decision on your part. One I made 20 years ago. Thank the Lord you don't have one of their beams aimed in your direction like I do, or you can give up listening for anything for 20 Khz. on either side of them. Targeting Europe my ass!

03:34 UTC 27 DEC 2022 - Conspiracy theory non-sense programing. Definitely not the WTWW 5085 programing we had been accustomed to. Good readable with marginal fading.

03:38 UTC - Exact same programming being relayed on WRMI 4980 kHz.
