Poor into TN SDR, ID 0102, much stronger into Cape Cod. "Celebrating 12 years of RTI." Distorted audio at times. "Radio Titanic International, your favorite shortwave station," announcing a few meterbands and 101FM. Very European. Seems to be a recording from 1987, then a recording from 1990. "Free radio from Germany since 1975."

Big into SWDX late 70s through early 90s, then forgot about it and when I returned via SDRs it wasn't at all what I remembered, but I'll deal with it. Grumble, grumble. All SDRs acknowledged, nothing is from my own radio.

I can barely hear the station mainly with a man announcer talking at 0102 UTC. Quite weak here.

SINPO=45333, but most audio is a bit muffled sounding.

131- Upbeat, semi-rap sounding tune with OM vocals, sounding like a parody song, but can't ID.
133- OM on the mic briefly, advertising special economy class.
134- Upbeat pop sounding tune with OM vocals (spoken word), about The Titanic and then discovering the wreck.
138- OM on the mic over music. Mention QSL, and IDs Radio Titanic International.
138- "Radio Titanic International...Free radio from Germany," OM recorded ID.
139- "Attenzione Go Go Radio" by Bernie Paul, with OM IDing repeatedly over the song. He thanks relaying radio station, I believe?
140- Song continues.
140- Recorded OM ID with mailing address in Germany (PO Box), over music.
141- OM mentions special QSL card, over music. Then says "bye bye" twice, and maybe "happy holidays."
142- More IDs over music, with mention of "since 1975."
142- OM says "bye bye, and take care...Radio Titanic International closing down."
142- Song continues.
144- OM IDs again over music, repeatedly. Gives address again.
144- Sound effects, then song continues.
144- One last ID by OM, over song.
145- OM synth voice IDs, then OM IDs again.
145- Wolfman Jack sounding OM on the mic.

Itís been quite a few years since I last heard Radio Titanic Intl. Wow, itís great to catch just a small part of the signal tonight with the relay. Not a good signal at all. I heard only a slight amount of audio. Thanks for sending out the relay!
