Radio Free Whatever 1720 AM 000? Nov 9, 2014
« on: November 09, 2014, 0021 UTC »
I've had 1720 on since the end of the PRB 22nd show, and I thought Undercover stayed on, but around 0000 or so the RFW Halloween Spooktacular show is being played again! Nice signal here with some deep fades. Spooky music :o
Prop is all over the place tonight! Around 0025 UTC the signal was buried in the noise. In the next few minutes, it bounced back up to S8 here! Somebody posted last night calling this "Swiss Cheese Propagation" :D

I've been listening for about 5 minutes and can just barely hear a carrier and occasionally, barely some audio.
