Heard both broadcasts here, but my PC was in use for another purpose at the time of broadcast...sent email report to whypradio@gmail.com just before posting this log. My report as follows...
Reception Report xmtr #1-WHYP on about 6925.1 KHZ AM from 2153-2213+ UTC Feb 8, 2014
SINPO-43333 (selective fading but steady S5-S6 signal)
2153 UTC Tune-in with an 80's tune by the Swedish group "A-HA" that I don't remember the name of already in progress.
2200 UTC "Baby You're a Rich Man"-Beatles
2203 UTC "Der Kommissar"-Falco
2208+ UTC "Sweetheart"- Frankie & the Knockouts
2213 UTC Man announcer..."goes back to 1980...Frankie & the Knockouts...this is WHYP...latest endeavor...25 watts (talk about xmtr)...this will be our back up transmitter...This is WHYP...see you in a few minutes". Off abrupt at 2214
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reception Report xmtr #2- WHYP on 6925 KHZ AM from 2217-2235 UTC Feb 8, 2014
SINPO-44444  (Nice signal really punched throuh some pesky QRM on LSB!)
2217 UTC A jazzy sounding uptempo swing tune ending then man announcer talking about the transmitters..."I like to @#$% around"...ID...into "Tell Me Something Good"-Rufus.
2225 UTC sounded like a recording of the CBC-740 live announcement of the closing down of their AM and instructions to tune to their 99.1 FM broadcast (This is CBC Radio 1...99.1 in Toronto
2228 UTC A jazzy swing ragtime kinda tune
2232 UTC Man announcer..."Thanks for listening to my test transmission...for QSL...whypradio@gmail.com
