Thunder Chicken Radio 6950 USB 2256 UTC 16 OCT 2023
« on: October 16, 2023, 2258 UTC »

 The station on 6950 USB is playing Techno Chicken by J Geco.   The station sounds like a Halloween oldies radio station and I did receive various SSTV signals from this station.  It's called Thunder Chicken Radio.   The last song they played was Van Halen - Happy Trails.

I have it with a fair but noisy signal.  Thanks for the show.
From the images, I suspect this is Thunder Chicken, but, not sure.
