Hummingbird 6940 USB, 0145 utc, Jan 13, 2015
« on: January 14, 2015, 0145 UTC »
80s rap with electric guitar. Great reception.
Jive music.
0150utc, "Humbear? Radio testing"
0155 Hummingbird Radio ID

SINPO
45534

In AM mode its very crunchy or messed up by propagation. In usb its nice and understandable.

Its 0251utc, haven't heard Hummingbird in a while. It was on and off.

I don't think I've heard any of those songs but they were pretty cool. Thanks for the test Hummingbird Radio, looking forward to hearing more.

Tough copy here, but I have some music.
Checking the SDR recording, sign on seemed to be 0114z, I heard an ID at 0206z.
Off at 0232.

I'm getting very weak music here in USB at 0213 UTC, but the noise level is too high for copy. Maybe a man announcer at 0216 UTC, but not certain.
Please QSL to poorbrookking@aol.com. Greatly Appreciated! All reception and postings using My radio, My antenna, and generally in real time(excluding posting of SSTV images!).
