Solar Federation 6960 USB 0135 UTC 14 MAR 2024
« on: March 14, 2024, 0135 UTC »
Music, S9, slightly noisy conditions but strong signal.

ID at 0138 - Solar Federation? Hard to make out.
"Attention All Planets" ID at 0140

My off-air recording:
https://archive.org/details/solar-federation-radio-6960-usb-0135-utc-14-mar-2024

There must really be a west coast transmitter, because my reception seriously dropped off after 0208!

Thanks for the broadcast!
