Old Time Radio on 6399.86, 2024 UTC, 11 December 2014
« on: December 11, 2014, 2124 UTC »
Haven't seen it in 90m or 6770 lately, but did find it with a good signal at 2024 UTC here in PA.  Usual programming; old show of WWII drama.  Long period of deadair after the pgm at 2043.  Then went off the air at 2050 and showed up on 6770.  Good signal on 6399.86.  Easy 100% copy.  4/5/4/4/4.  But on 6770 it was somewhat poor.  Here's a link to a Youtube video of 6399.86.

This seems to be Old Time Radio 2?  I still have Old Time Radio on 6770.

I believe this is OTR2 also, with fair signal here on 6400 KHZ AM at 2334 UTC. Radio drama with British accented man. Not sure what program yet but will stay tuned. 6770 KHZ AM is also coming in with fair signal on 6770ish with diferent program. I'm getting a very low pitched het here, assumed cochannel North Korea?
Thanks Chris L! I got that too, but now at 2247 UTC I'm hearing what sounds like the Ramones or some other punk rockers! Decidedly not OTR.
2251 UTC Man announcer with...."about one of the worst things ever heard on shortwave...so bad it was actually entertaining in that respect"..then OFF
Hmmm...
I guess someone is having a little bit of fun! Please QSL! ;D
