The Crystal Ship 6876 kHz AM 0030 UTC 07/03/2015
« on: July 03, 2015, 0029 UTC »
0030 UTC, Just signing on with The 80's Time Machine Show.

0124 UTC, Still a very noisy signal (S8) with good audio at times but accompanied by static crashes and fading.

Thanks J.P for the heads up and also a big thank you to the Relayer who made this transmission possible.
Looking forwad to receive the new eQSL for the 80's Time Machine Show.

Unusable in Eastern Pennsylvania.  Music, but cannot identify the songs.

A strength thing, not a noise thing.

Good to hear TCS tonight here in Central Iowa. It's been a while since I've had a chance to tune into anything. Heard Land of Confusion, Harden My Heart, and now 99 Red Balloons. They're signal is strong at times, but with a lot of deep fading. SIO 222

Thanks for the show John!

The Crystal Ship, 6876 AM, 0106, 7/3/15.  "80's Time machine" with period music, ID at 0117.
