Red Mercury Labs 6940 USB 8/4/13 0240z
« on: August 04, 2013, 0241 UTC »
Just heard ID for Red Mercury Labs after rock song I didn't recognize.  Only fair via eastern SDR, will try home tuner.
0242z: Commentary on 4th Amendment
0300z: Wall of Voodoo "Mexican Radio"
0307z: Reading online logs, mentioned HFU.
0311z: CCR "Run Through the Jungle"
0315z: RML IDs, 6940 USB in the manliest of modes.  Lynyrd Skynyrd "Man a Simple Bee"
0330z: Sounded like Perry Farrell from Jane's Addiction or Porno for Pyros, not sure.
0335z: Shout out to Wm. K. Hertz and FRC, Cars "It's All I Can Do", "Moving In Stereo".  I remember seeing The Cars at their peak, around 1979-81.  They ripped into "Got A Lot On My Head" and put on a great show.  Not much spontaneity but very polished.
0354z: After Simple Minds "Don't You Forget About Me", closing comments and sign-off.

Rough copy at first, better after 0300z:
SINPO=33243 via east coast SDR - much louder summer QRN
SINPO=32333 via home receiver - much louder ute QRM

By sign-off time, signal was much clearer on my home receiver with indoor antenna than via eastern web tuner.  Still some significant propagation shifts well after dark this summer.

RML S9 here in San Antonio. Playing some Queen.

If you haven't tried a magnetic loop you should. They really null out the noise.

flipped on my bedside shortwave radio at 2:58z & RML was doing HFU shout outs. S9+10-20 with no external antenna. I'm starting to think that my next door neighbor is RML.

I need the attenuator switched on with the outdoor antenna. signal goes up to S9+40

Getting here in Missouri nice and clear. Just heard the shout outs to HFU. Sounds like CCR coming on now. This is my first time hearing Red Mercury Labs, so I felt it was a good excuse for a first post!
