WBCQ 5110 > 7415 recently
« on: January 04, 2010, 0323 UTC »
1/4/10, 0250z, 5110: Caught end of Grasscutter show on WBCQ Area 51.  Good signal peaks with rapid fades and moderate noise, on indoor Magnavox D2935 portable with the whip.

Meanwhile, WBCQ on 7415 around 0300z was barely audible, sounded like Bro Scare hollerin'.

Interesting flip-flops in propagation recently from WBCQ when comparing 5110 and 7415.  Until the past month 7415 was routinely much stronger and clearer here.  But on some recent nights 5110 has come in better, with Area 51, Lumpy Gravy and Timtron shows.  Not nearly as strong as last year at this time, but fair considering recent poor propagation.
