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

SINPO=13221
2249- Can make out a fast dance beat sometimes, and now what sounds like electronic music with repeating tones.

SINPO=33333 now
2317- Ambient/atmospheric electronic music now. Sort of spooky sounding.

2251 got a faint signal of music just at/below the noise threshold.
2314 stronger now, beeps and boops reminiscent of Kraftwerk though I'm sure it's not that. SIO 111

Good signal in rising noise levels. Signal is S8 and music is louder now. Show goes into single note tones and then multi-tones. OM is saying something that is impossible to understand. Thanks for the broadcast.

The signal has either come up rapidly or a new station is on the air. The music seems different, and the signal is stronger. Good rock tunes are playing. It is now a very good broadcast.

Exact frequency is drifting and hard to follow. S7 with the W3HFU KiwiSDR. QRM from Peskies on the frequency, doesn’t sound like Spanish (but what is it?).

2256 UTC-Strange Electronic Music, frequency somewhere around 6950.08 kHz
2308 UTC-Now seems to be settled on 6949.98 kHz, still drifting
2318 UTC-Frequency suddenly moving down in steps of 10 Hz

2322 UTC-OM “that was some weird s**t huh”
2322 UTC-Martin 1 SSTV
2324 UTC-Beck’s Bolero / Rice Pudding (Live) by Joe Bonamassa (now stable on 6949.98 kHz)
2333 UTC-Mainline Florida (Live) by Joe Bonamassa

Not sure if the station after 2322 UTC is the same or not. It is definitely Thunder Chicken Radio after that time, but not sure about before that.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Kenwood TS-570D or RTL-SDR V3 with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 50 feet.

Excellent signal. I've had some problems tuning it in, between the drifting and the type of music
