Midnight Radio via NAPRS 6935 AM 0002 UTC 24 Sep 2023
« on: September 24, 2023, 0005 UTC »
Posting before Danger Kitty!

0002 - Open carrier starts.
0006 - Clock chimes at 0006. Heard what may be an ID but sound is quite muffled.
0007 - ID: "Midnight Radio", appropriately starting at near midnight UTC. "Midnight Radio would like to say hello to all the listeners". Planned discussion of sexual harassment.
0010 - The carrier itself is S9+10 on the K3FEF SDR. Introducing the announcers: Flan? Slam (corrected after they spelled it phonetically) and Draw?
0012 - Blue Ridge Summit address. Clearly a "vintage" recording.
0018 - Discussion of how to perform and get away with sexual harassment on a co-worker, referencing Justice Clarence Thomas.
0020 - ID. Fake advert for diarrhea med.
0023 - Discussion of labour unions.
0025 - I have played with the SDR bandwidth and my computer's graphic equalizer and the audio is almost tolerable.
0028 - A fake PSA whose content makes me think that it's good that the audio is quite muffled and difficult to understand.
0034 - Relay via NAPRS. "Good night and good DX" in a distinct New England accent. Carrier off.

I don't STRETCH the truth.

Every minute Charlie squats in the bush, his signal gets stronger."

SINPO=44333, strong signal but audio difficult to copy due to sounding muffled.

007- Talk from a studio, then says going to a commercial.
008- Spoof commercial with OM talking, and then disclaimer.
009- Another spoof commercial for a school.
010- Music and OM speaking over it. Midnight Radio ID.
011- The Slam and Zwob (not Slob) Show, I believe. Address for QSLs is PO Box in Blue Ridge Summit, PA.
