WFDR 6910 USB 2249 UTC 8 DEC 2023
« Reply #2 on: December 08, 2023, 2254 UTC »
2253 UTC Seems to be a newscast the day after the Pearl Harbor bombing (a solid S9 and 100% copy)
2255 UTC Live newscast of the proceedings from the House of Representatives
2300 UTC FDR's "A Day of Infamy" speech
2310 UTC OM with WFDR ID, and talking (more than I've ever heard before!) Then OFF
(The spoken word at the end as follows: "WFDR New York. This is the original WFDR. This is not the imposter that sent out verifications for online reports. The real WFDR does not do that. Good Night and Happy Hanukkah from WFDR")***

Thank you for keeping the tradition alive WFDR!

0010 - Noted that "this was the real WFDR" and not the one sending out fake QSLs. "Happy Hanukah and Good Night."
0011 - Off
