WTF Radio Worldwide 6950 USB 0133 UTC 26 FEB 2024
« on: February 26, 2024, 0134 UTC »
0133 WTF Radio ID into "Good Times Bad Times" Led Zeppelin. Signal is pretty rough at my home QTH but booming into Sigma kiwi SDR at the MA/CT border. Thanks for the show!
0136 OM "Yes it's true, the mothership has landed" into "Communication Breakdown" Led Zep
0138 "Dazed and Confused" you know who
0145 "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" LZ
0151 OM "From the east coast of North America this is WTF Radio Worldwide" into...
0152 "Whole Lotta Love" LZ
0157 "Ramble On" LZ
0201 OM "OK, that band is called Led Zeppelin, playing tunes from a CD called 'Mothership'" into "Heartbreaker"
0205 OM talking about how Mothership comp came out in 2007
0206 "Immigrant Song" LZ
0208 OM briefly saying something about "moving the needle," into "Black Dog" LZ
0213 "When the Levee Breaks" LZ
0220 Sung station ID "What's the Frequency? It's WTF Radio!" OM saying facetiously "what's the name of this song?" into "Stairway to Heaven" LZ
0228 "The Song Remains the Same" LZ
0233 WTF Radio ID into "Over the Hills and Far Away" LZ (OM speaking over the end of it, how you think it's over when it's not)
0238 "D'yer Mak'er" LZ

Gotta go do other things now. Thanks for the show! Again it was excellent rx into New England but not so much where I actually reside.

Tuned in at 0133 on Brookfield WI sdr with fair S7-S9 signal, said "the mother ship has landed" then played old Led Zeppelin tunes circa 1970, nice to hear tunes from my Hippie days (I'm 78), off at 0328, thanks for the program.

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
