First heard RFE at 2232 with a long ad for the California Marijuana Cooperative.  Apparently the brochures are great and the monthly free samples are much appreciated.

And a motto for RFE, "We're the toke of the town."

Also, an advertisement for Free Radio News from the Malmo Shortwave Club and the closing skit.

The music was everywhere; hard rock to Dixieland to modern folk to organ music.

There was underlying, just distinguishable, QRM, primarily voice.  SINPO 34343 until 2246 when the signal deteriorated until only the background QRM was present, at about 2257.  This was about seven minutes before the reported sign-off.

Thanks for the diversion,


Ron
