Thunder Chicken Radio 6955 USB 2230 UTC 08 FEB 2024
« on: February 08, 2024, 2230 UTC »
2030: music "Artifact / The Turn" and then "Broken Pieces Shine", both by Evanescence
35333

2235: "The Game is Over" - Evanescence; OM says something about QRN, "I'm going to [something] anyway" over mx
...
2309: "Time Machine (Live in Paris)" - Joe Satriani
...
2330: "The word of the day is 'gratuitous'"; apparent Thunder Chicken ID -> "Crowd Chant" - Joe Satriani
2335: 4534[3-4]; signal significantly stronger as opposed to 2030, less fading/more stable, a bit less noise
2341: SSTV
   

Thank you for the broadcast!

I have with a good signal and some nice blues tunes.  Thanks for the show.
0045 ID and sign off, I think.  But, AM signal came on at 0046
0049 USB playing experimental electronic music. New transmission, no fading like Thunder Chicken.
