Sternradio 6932 AM was FM 2000 UTC 21 FEB 2024

Sternradio is doing some FM experiments.  We shall see how this goes.  Let me know if I need to increase/decrease deviation?

I'll settle for sounding okay.  I can increase the deviation up to about 60kHz if necessary ;)

I have a strong s-9 here but the deviation is narrow banded and on the higher pitched side for audio tonal quality. Cool experiments though. I'm receiving at 16 KHz wide btw. It sounds better when I reduce my filter to 9KHz.

S9+20 here this afternoon. Enjoying Steely Dan which sounds good, but then momentarily becomes distorted.

Sounding good in AM!

I think that was Slayer.  Finding some tunes just don't work well on HF.
