Spaceshuttle Radio 13800 AM 2000z 5/3/15
« on: May 03, 2015, 2011 UTC »
2000z s/on

2009z ID w/ report submission info...

s3-4 much better than earlier broadcast times!!

2058z ID w/ann in English & Dutch, poss Italian as well? over music bed
2059z commercial for radio equipment & services including equipment restorations [wish I could remember what the name was...]
2101z /off mid commercial

Achieved an s9+ at another remote location of K4CTM using newly built 2 element spider quad @20' above ground!!!
Amazing how well I was able to hear them in 2 locations today!  Before I left my house their signal peaked s5 while comparing Elad S2 to Bonito RadioJet 1305 I have to evaluate...
Both heard it about the same & posted to my Facebook SWL page at https://www.facebook.com/shortwaveradio with screenshots of both radios

It was a good test for me!

Tuned in at 2003 UTC but signal is again at or just above noise floor. I can hear some music at 2008 UTC with slight flutter to the signal. Not good copy, but I can tell when announcers are on vs. music. Hoping this will get stronger here!
2020 UTC Man announcer but can't tell what's being said.
2058 UTC Sounds like "El Condor Pasa", but in another language!
2059 UTC Man announcer now
2101 UTC OFF

Thanks for the program! Again, the noise level here made for tough copy...signal picked up a bit later in the broadcast!

poor but audible here. I doublechecked what I was hearing against Twente & it was definitely Spaceshuttle. A few bits of music here and there were clear. BTW, the signal was very good, but a bit distorted via Twente
Thanks for the show!
