Boombox Radio 6875.6, 1/27, 1239* *1243+
« on: January 27, 2015, 1245 UTC »
Was tuning through the band to see if anyone was on the air: heard audio here, came back to it, heard a couple seconds of audio, then dead carrier for a minute, and the plug was pulled.

Aaah, it's back on & I just heard a few clear IDs. I guess BBR has power, after all.

Thanks for the blizzard edition of BBR!

I've been getting a carrier on 6875.7ish here since 1245 UTC, but only the slightest hint of audio :(
1256 UTC Signal started to fade in and out of the noise floor and has been improving steadily!
1306 UTC Yes! The band has opened up nicely! Up to S5 in a matter of minutes!
1308 UTC Sultry voiced female pop tune
1312 UTC Fast paced techno/dance tune (S9 and holding ;D)
1316 UTC ID.."Boombox Radio", into Techno Rock tune
(Spam on graham crackers, plain bagel with strawberry cream cheese....and more coffee)
1327 UTC DJ LT with ID
1331 UTC A more rock oriented tune!
1334 UTC DJ LT with ID, into electronica spacey tune
1404 UTC DJ LT with ID, into pop tune
(Signal holding up very well here BBR! Just chatting a bit in mibbitland)
1414 UTC DJ LT with ID, into pop tune. (I'm recording the whole program and will get my niece to Shazam all these tunes...actually she knows a lot of them already!)
1419 UTC DJ LT with email address repeated several times... boomboxshortwave@gmail.com, then OFF

Thanks for the entertainment this lovely blizzard morning BBR! Now it's time to head outside and face mother natures fury.... 8)

Listening since 1330 on 6.875.70. Very good signal with some noise, but not a big problem. Headphones not necessary. Boombox Radio ID at 1334. Able to identify a steady stream of songs with a little help from my friend Shazzam: Godless by Dandy Warhols, Nobody Else by Full Crate, You're On by Madeon Feat Kyan, Revive by Coyote kisses, If I Can, Bad Habit by The Kooks, and Torn Apart by Bastille and Grades.

Thanks Boombox for broadcasting for all of us who are snowed in!
