1720 Undercover Radio 0127 UTC 10/25/2014
« on: October 25, 2014, 0130 UTC »
Open carrier noted for several minutes at 0125 UTC tune-in.  Undercover Radio ID at 0129z. S6/S7 signal here.  Coming in better than last week.

0147z: Dr. Benway live ID and discussion on 17xx challenges and mention of a new antenna (working great I'd say!)

Thanks UR!
