1720am Radio Free Whatever / PRB *0229-0425z* 12/23/2013
« on: December 23, 2013, 0230 UTC »
Signing on right now, S4-S5 with some deep fades right into my S3 noise floor.  1980s hard rock tunes, bringing back lots of good memories tonight :-)  Thanks for the MW broadcast.

Complete off-air recording, spanning two hours: 1720 kHz RFW-PRB Relay 23DE13 0229-0425 UTC.mp3

1720 - the new pirate clear channel??

Just barely detect carrier on 1720 in ssb mode. I don't hear any audio in either am or ssb mode. Edit at 0325utc, hear occasional bits of audio in usb mode.

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
