Great signal into the Shenandoah Mountains VA.
S9+20 with no preamp needed on a 1370' end-fed

Reminds me of the old days of Radio Caroline back in the UK.
Great stuff.

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

6955 khz, just tuned in, fair signal with heavy noise in western New York, FEB 24-25, 2023


2354z  Previous song IDed as "Caroline (something)"
2354z  Announcer IDs station as "Radio Free Whatever", playing the best music in the whole world
2354z  Next song announced is by Ben Folds
2358z  "This is Radio Free Whatever"
0001z  "Whatever" (I think from Ferris Bueller's Day Off?)
0005z  "light another cigarette, and pour another shot", "Whatever", signal has deteriorated badly, can barely hear it through the noise now. 
0029z  Signal is now much improved

Thanks, Radio Free Whatever!

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.

Fun Fact: Learnt is a word used by mostly British people (such as myself) and is absolutely a word.

Still 20 over in NW VA

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.
No problem here, and thank you for the well produced shows. There's been a lot of stepping-on-top-of tonight on other freqs and hope none of it was affecting your show. Frankly, it's hard for me to keep track of. Once again, thank you!
QSL to umst777@yahoo.com would be greatly appreciated!
