Tuned in at 0100 UTC on 6940 kHz USB with a phenomenal S9 + 30 db signal on my Eton e1 here in northern New Jersey. ID by DJ Dickweed, followed by music. Another ID loud and clear at 0104 UTC: "Nobody does rock like DJ Dickweed," followed by Little Dragon. DJ gave the e-mail address as DJDickweed@gmail.com before signing off at 0109 UTC.

Once DJ signed off, a male voice cam on frequency and said: "Comrade, where have you gone? Is anybody out there? Please respond." Nothing further heard here. Much weaker signal than Radio Free Whatever. DJ put a signal stronger than any other logged to date...I had to go in my back yard just to check and see if DJ was there! :)
 
Thanks for the show and music tonight, sir!

73's,
