XEROX Relay 6935 AM 0139 UTC 02 April 2024
« on: April 02, 2024, 0147 UTC »
0139 Weak music
0141 XEROX - Radio Duplicado ID.  I assume it's a recording of an old broadcast.
0149 another XEROX ID, repeated a few times
0152 Flute solo over the noise
0155 Better signal on W3HFU KiwiSDR, OM with XEROX ID - Rrradio Duplicado!
0157 Automated voice ID - XEROX (inaudible) Memorial Station

@ 0205, signal has all but died here, but reception is picking up in Maryland. S8 signal, but noisy conditions

0216 Sign-Off? Only see a carrier with no modulation.
0209 another Voice ID into guitar music
0211 sounds like the same flute solo from before

0216 Sign-Off? Only see a carrier with no modulation.
0218 Carrier off

Sample recording with Voice ID and music

0152z - Music on ~6934.97KHz. SIO 322. Occasional S7+ carrier peaks via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. DSB sync tuning. Intense static crashing is making for a very difficult copy, but it is there.

0200z - Xerox ID. Switched to the 148' loop-on-ground. Slightly better copy, though still plenty of intense static crashing.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)
