Ahhh...nice S8 signal here tonight after being shut out from the last broadcast by the evil ionospere gremlins! Tune in at 2230 UTC to a kinda goofy song by OM singer with lyrics about "writing a letter to Obama" ;D
2234 UTC Song with an ominous double bass drum beat intro electronica rap tune that I suppose you can dance to 8)
2239 UTC DJ Dickweed ID'ing tunes, ID, new song from the "1975" (that's what they call themselves)...techno electronica vocal ditty
2244 UTC RFW jingle, into a tune with an intro that sounds like the beginning of "Wild Thing", but it ain't....good tune though! Nice feedback outro
2246 UTC False start on different song....or was that the song itself?
2249 UTC Dickweed ID'ing song...."Boredom & Joy"-Overhead...PWRBTTM....amplifier went off line so stopped the song and restarted it....welcome to call...back to 1980...an obscure Canadian band...very rare track. (Song sounds kinda like T-Rex meets the Romantics)
2257 UTC Song with kettle drum intro....
2259 UTC Uh Oh...signal is dropping...I think the band is going long :-\
2303 UTC Dick Weed getting hard to hear, but I think you said something about the HF Underground and a request....Signal seems to have leveled off at S4 above an S3 noise floor
2308 UTC Damn...fading in and out of the noise now
2316 UTC I can hear Dick Weed but can't make out what is being said....space weather is being uncooperative...
2327 UTC Past 10 minutes with fragmentary copy....I can tell the difference between the music and Dick Weed talking though....
Thanks for the Sunday evening show Comrade!

Its nice to hear something on 43m from NA at last, after what feels like months!

RFW coming across with good strength tonight but battling with QRM on the frequency.

sinpo 21331 Thank you for still being there - I was beginning to feel like giving up.
