Man Cave Radio 6925 AM 0039 UTC 23 Jun 2014
« on: June 23, 2014, 0112 UTC »
0111 Modulation suddenly came up.. can hear it better on USB.."Summertime"  S5. Missed an ID but heard "something radio"
( Thanks  Chris)
0119  This seems to be an under modulated signal. I can hear the modulation but it's distorted. Reasonable strength so sounds like transmitter needs some TLC. Easier to make some sense on SSB, but it's still hard sledding.

Presumed Man Cave Radio with DSB (there is still a carrier on 6925 from the UNID I previously logged).

I think the frequency is 6925.081, there's a faint carrier there, and it sounds better when tuned there, and sounds the same in both USB and LSB modes.

Audio at 0111 UTC in USB and LSB but distorted in AM. UNID song
0120 UTC "Summer Breeze"-Seals and Crofts
0123 UTC "Blurred Lines"
0126 UTC OFF? I still have that carrier...very strong with something weak under it...strange!
0145 UTC I'm hearing "Summer Breeze" again, this time on 6924.4 KHZ with a strong het from the carrier on 6925.

0120z "Summer Breeze"
0158z /off

s7-8 here with pretty good audio but there is a 2nd carrier in there, about 150Hz off, that was causing a het...

I almost want to say it was a simulcast but unable to parse the 2 signals here  :-\

6925 AM  0116-0135+ 2014 JUN 23
Will be marked as an UNID here in Nebraska.  Can hear some copy but signal too deep in noise floor.  Presumed AM mode but was heard better in LSB.   Nearby het creating another problem with attempts to copy.

Was getting something on USB but the storms are pushing the static crashes all the way to a S9 at times-bummer. :-\

Recorder catch:

6925ish DSB (rx in USB)

Overall good signal here for most of the tx, but strength dropped near the end of show - same details as others.

01:10z-01:26z Audio

Thanks MCR!

Recorder Catch on 6925 USB

Essentially the same details as others, although offtuned a hair.  Possible ID, but only tent.

Signal strength was weak to fair on a couple of peaks, and thanks MCR!

Let's see if we can clear some of this up after reveiwing my recording! I was already parked on 6925 AM because of the strong carrier when a man came on at 0111 UTC with ID..."Man Cave Radio". Signal was distorted, but could make out "In the Summertime"-Mungo Jerry with man announcer talkover(I couldn't make out what was said). I went to USB and the signal cleared up quite a bit. This was followed by what sounded like Rascal Flatts at 0115 UTC, and "Summer Breeze"-Seals & Croft at 0120 UTC. 0124 UTC Sounded like some kind of remix of "Blurred Lines"-Robin Thicke??? Signal dropped out to almost nothing at around 0127 UTC, but I could catch moments of very weak threshold audio until around 0145 when the audio picked up and I could hear an off tuned "Summer Breeze"-Seals & Croft again. I retuned to 6924.4 KHZ USB and the signal cleared up a bit until OFF about 0158 UTC. I confirmed this frequency with markokpik who said he was getting hets on 6924.4 and 6925 KHZ also. Chris S's UNID post is almost certainly Man Cave Radio, only the op changed the frequency and hasn't got the bugs worked out of the xmtr!
{Thanks for the show Man Cave Op....gave my ears a bit of a workout...last night and this early evening listening to the recording!}
{I believe the 0039 UTC in the header is for that strong carrier on 6925...should be 0111 UTC for Man Cave Radio sign on....never did check at the end of the broadcast to see if that carrier was still on 6925 kHZ}
