Sternradio 6951.7 was 6950 AM 0213 UTC 10 MAR 2024
« on: March 10, 2024, 0214 UTC »
0213: Sternradio "is having trouble, transmitter smoking"
- sounds like maybe over-modulated, some distortion
55555* - huge signal, almost S9+40
0219: audio a little better now, ID -> techno mx "epsilon minus girlfriend alert"

Thank you for the show, Sternradio!

I have a carrier at 6949.7, likely the same signal. But sadly no modulation.

0222 Getting SIO 111 signal now
0228 improved signal, SIO 222 with techno type music
0231 faded back almost below the noise
0235 nothing but carrier again. Thanks for the show.

Tuned in at 0217 on Brookfield WI sdr with good S9+20 signal, ID as Stern Radio, techno pop music, song "girlfriend alert" with weird sounds, also tuned in locally with fair S9+20 signal over S9+ neighborhood noise, at 0307 "national anthem" then off.

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

Bitte warten, Sternradio hat technische Schwierigkeiten. Der Sender raucht. Rauchen wird dich töten.

That's a band called B! Machine.  He really does sound like David Gahan doesn't he?

I had the pleasure of seeing B! Machine perform a few decades ago?  Good grief.
