« on: February 25, 2023, 2251 UTC »
music and no ID so far at 2250
55555, big signal, S9+10
2250: "imperial" sounding mx -- "Overture" - John Barry
2252: DJ Dickweed, ID, with a "musical intervention"
moved from 6950 due to overtopping other station on 6950, per DJDW
2258: "The coolest station on SW" -> "Black Top White Lines" - Chris Shiflett

Double check your frequency, I got him on 6955
He just said he was on 6950 over top of another station. He moved to 6955 after about 1-2 minutes.

Dickweed just wrote this in the chat:

“not sure why it says i was on 6950? i wasnt”

“I think danger kitty might have thought he spotted me on 6950 at first. So when I saw a unid posting come up on 6950 at the exact same time as me i got a little worried i was stepping on someone”

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.

There is also no station on 6950 USB
OK - I'm wrong and didn't hear what I said I heard. Everybody else is right and for some reason I had to retune freq. But I'm wrong.

Don't sweat the small stuff Danger Kitty. If you heard something I believe you, but I'm saying it wasn't me. Perhaps you did hear another station for just a brief moment. Regardless, im just glad theres nobody in close quarters for me to piss off. lol
Thanks for posting me in the first place so people know I'm skybound. I appreciate all of you posters out there for inspiration to do shows.
