Sternradio 6963.7 AM 0154 UTC 24 MAR 2024
« on: March 24, 2024, 0154 UTC »
Changed freqs a couple times at start up. Currently on 6963.67 (approximately).
Listening on and off near the ocean in CA on a portable and a long wire. SINPO 33232 / S5 on peaks with a fair amount of flutter tonight. (The same thing was happening to Solar Federation Radio.)

0311 - Computer-generated male and female voices. Perhaps reading the email address in English and German.
0315 - Carrier off immediately after completion of national-anthem-type of song.

I don't STRETCH the truth.

"Every minute I spend in this room, my signal gets weaker.
Every minute Charlie squats in the bush, his signal gets stronger."

Tuned in at 0203 utc on Barrington Hills IL sdr with fair S5-S7 signal, technopop music, at 0209 male then female said "this is Stern Radio"

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

Strong signal in western NY on 6963.6 khz

Announcements are hard to get even with a strong signal, computerized voice seems deliberately distorted

0158z   Electronic music
0203z   "Stern Radio" (thanks to others who have posted on this one, I thought I was hearing "Syko" or "Samurai" but now I hear "Stern")
0226z  "Stern Radio" with address for QSLs. but I copuldn't quite get it, even with a phonestic alphabet, maybe "sternradio666@", finishing with "Das ist Stern Radio"
