HORIZON FM 6255 KHZ AM MARCH 12, 2014 2252 UTC
« on: March 12, 2014, 2317 UTC »
Horizon FM is pounding in here with clear ID's, nice clean wide audio...Give Me the Night-George Benson, ID, advertisement...We are Family at 2303 UTC. This despite real poor reception conditions tonight! Nearly 100% copy on speech!
{per email just a little while ago, Andy says running about 300 watt carrier}
{oly, he is just testing tonight with a few "valves" missing..hopes to get 1KW as soon as a new set of "valves" arrive! You should be able to hear this then straight on! He switched from 6245 KHZ because of reports of QRM}
(I checked up one more time at 0045 UTC and nothing heard. Don't know if they signed off or if that big solar flare around 1105 UTC or so kicked in...lots of solar activity today!)

Also listening to Horizon FM on 6255 Skipmuck using the Twente webSDR and the signal there is a S15+ and great audio. Heard We Are Family with ID at 2312. Sounding very professional. Enjoying the show very much. going to listen till they sign off. The Twente SDR is the only way I would here it here in MN. :)

Here's some more fuel to the fire...Wikipedia is not the best of sources and this link was modified on March 3, 2014...the last paragraph is interesting!
