Radio Free Whatever? 6830 AM 2307 UTC 9 Sep 2013

SDR recording catch on this oddball frequency.

Sign on at 2307 directly into music, "Swallowed" by Bush.
2309 "Test 12345, Check 123" Sounded like DJ Dickweed
2313 "Play That Funky Music"
2314 Off mid song

Very good signal, S9+20

Yes comrade, you heard top secret test of RFW. Was supposed to only be for Assistant Steven to check audio quality 40 miles away. We revamped our processing after finding that pre-recorded shows with lots of DSP sounded much better (particularly the op breaks) than live shows with rack mounted equipment. Now all live audio is being processed DSP.
