WWBR-Worldwide Basement Radio 6910 AM 2340 UTC 10 FEB 2024
« on: February 10, 2024, 2343 UTC »
S-on with an old Jefferson Airplane tune, fair S9 to S9+10 signal on Brookfield WI sdr, some strange distortion in audio, at 2347 "Ruby baby" by Dione and the Belmonts from 1963, more tunes, off at 2354 after audio troubles, came back on around 0000 with better audio, at 0021 DJ spoke with muffled audio and couldn't understand a word he said, at 0025 said "Worldwide Basement Radio" with better audio,

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
