Weak music through the noise noted at 0042 UTC. Peskie on LSB, so using USB, but the static crashing is brutal :(

Seeing carrier, hearing a het but otherwise nothing audible here...

0230-0234z SSTV too weal to copy...
0237z more SSTV
0247z more SSTV
0253z even more SSTV
Not related to relay, it was another station  :'(

I would guess, by signal & freq, that it relay via Liquid Radio...

Static: Nature's reminder it's time to roll it up before the Lightning Gods get you, till next season... [Well theoretically!]

Free Thinker Radio, 6925.3, 0052, 3/28/15.  "Incense and Peppermint, OM talk "... Radio" (I was adjusting to get away from the LSB peskie), another era song which I don't remember the name, ID (also hard to tell), Black Sabbath.  Improving signal, clear talk and ID's between songs after about 0120.

Weak

6925 AM / MAR 25 / 0044-0110+
Weak signal hampered by heavy static and ops on LSB.
Songs "i Am the Walrus," "Incense and Peppermint" and others.
Op is announcing song titles but voice is deep in noise floor.  Only able, so far, to hear station as " ?  Radio."
At 0117 caught clear ID as "Free Thinker Radio" into an ad for "Joe Bob's Garden ?"
Despite constant static rushes, audio legibility increased greatly after LSB ops left airwaves.

Tuned in at 0202utc, fair/poor, rock and heavy metal, announcers voice a bit muffled, R2000 & dipole. (edit) played "they're coming to take me away" by napoleon XIV from the 1960's (I have that 45 rpm record).

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
