RFW 6950 USB 0039 June 15
« on: June 15, 2014, 0039 UTC »
0038 Signing on RFW Dick Weed
0041  S5-6   I am getting this better on USB, but looks like an AM signal  
0043  ID RFW
0051 Pseudo disco ?  OOOOH KAY...
0055.. I often find RFW signal is worth getting the R390 warmed up for some improved fidelity, but not happening this evening.. noise is bad. The DSP tools on the IC7700 doing a great job though.
0126  Off

Thanks for the show and fun listening !

0045z RFW sounding good in NH, S9+. Nice wide signal about 4khz so I switched to the SDR so I could drive the "big" stereo speakers/subwoofer I have on my PC.

0126z Sign-off - Thanks Dickweed, still sounding great at the end

One minute I'm listening to MAC closing down with the Star Spangled Banner, and a few minutes later I'm listening to the Soviet Anthem on RFW all in the space of half a kHZ...I love pirate radio ;D
Great signal here tonight and excellent USB audio DJ Dickweed!

Very tough copy here in eastern Nebraska.  Signal barely above noise floor and approaching storm adding to the difficulty. IDs at  0107 and 0125.
Just a boy with his radio and some wire.
