Radio Free Whatever 6940am, 0145utc 3 Oct 2013
« on: November 03, 2013, 0147 UTC »
S-on with old USSR natl anthem, then talk, poor sig.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

SDR recording catch. 0143-0247. Just a carrier here, too weak for any usable audio.
