WTF Radio Worldwide 6950 USB 2203 UTC 10 DEC 2023
« on: December 10, 2023, 2203 UTC »
2203: sign on, IS-type music, with ominous sound to parts of it
33333, some pesky QRM, I think; static crashes prevalent - had thunderstorms earlier
2205: "Journey of the Sorcerer" - Eagles
2206: OM with disguised voice, can't make it out, some laughing -> "Take it Easy" - Eagles
2212: "Nightengale" - Eagles
2216: "Peaceful Easy Feeling" - Eagles
2221: ID jingle

Thank you for the broadcast!

Tuned in at 2246 utc on Brookfield WI sdr with weak S7 signal, rock music playing,
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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
