WHYP 6925 AM
« on: December 25, 2009, 1444 UTC »
I just turned on the radio and caught the very tail end of the WHYP "Brownyard Family Christmas" with a 1441 UTC sign-off. The AM signal was booming here in the Boston burbs.

Also hearing it again at 1902 UTC here in the Boston burbs, S9+30 with a new-wave-ish punk song. Great audio and signal!

Got him here too since1823z, playing Devo tunes.  Discussion by op about getting everything in the shack reconfigured after a long period of inactivity.  Big S9+20 signal.  Off at 1904z.
