Just signing on now with Soviet Anthem. About an S9 here, some fading.

I enjoy the Time Warp shows as well, thank you Comrade Dickweed!

Time Warp - 1944 - t shirt plug ... Bing Crosby tune 2142 ... love these time warp shows Dick Weed!
I thought Douglas Edwards was still alive but he died in 1990. On the other hand Richard C. Hottelet, born 1917, is still with us. The last survivor of the WW II reporters.
Shortwave news report at 2216... nice.  2253*

Not doing too well here at 2157, but hoping the sig picks up.
Now significantly better at 2216.

Thanks RFW!

The station name is Radio Free Whatever - so RFW is the abbreviation.
