Way down in the noise, tough copy...

0110z Just tuned in and copied last quarter of a Scottie 1 SSTV, too fuzzy to tell what it is
0114z CSNY - Ohio
0117z Dylan - Masters of War
0122z Marvin Gaye - What's Goin' On?

Thanks for the heads up jF, The Kent State Shootings were May, 4th

0125z Rave On ID, can't copy much of Rave On's comments but talking about Kent State anniversary (I think)
0128z Dylan - Knockin' On Heaven's Door
0133z Rave On ID, even further down into the noise now
0138z Can barely hear Rave On talking, static peaking S9+
0150z Shout-outs, Thanks Rave On
0151z SSTV

A noisy S4 here, with "Shelter From the Storm" by Bob Dylan @ 0141z
Switched antennas and jumped up to S7, still some static crashes.
Thanks for the show!

Heard last night just before hitting the sack at 0134 UTC as an UNID with barely audible signal buried in the noise...reception last night pretty bad! Tried for a few more minutes, but couldn't even make out what songs were being played. Hopefully prop will be better next time!
QSL's to poorbrookking >at< aol.com are greatly appreciated! All reception and postings using My radio, my antenna, and generally in real time(excluding posting of SSTV images!).

SDR recording catch. 0111 sign on with Scottie 1 SSTV:



Generally fair reception. No QRM, just a weak signal plus the higher Spring static levels.

Thanks for the show, Rave on Radio!
