Radio Gaga 6930 DSB 0008 UTC 06 Feb 2016
« on: February 06, 2016, 0010 UTC »
ID @ 0009 and "Jive Talking".  S5 and good audio.
Oops, typo on the frequency - modified topic to 6930 DSB.
0011 - "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen
0013 - "Black Friday" by Steely Dan - up to S7 and sounding very good.
0016 - "Buffalo Soldier" by Marley/Wailers.  Announcer broke in at 0019 with ID and back into tune.
Gaga must have upgraded their audio chain - audio out to nearly 4khz and nice compression.
0021 - "Dirty Love" by F. Zappa
0024 - "Drive On" by J Cash
0025 - "End of the Line" by Travelling Wilburys. - getting a little distortion in the audio now.
0030 - "Eyes Without a Face" by B Idol.  Still distorted, (maybe something on my end?).
0035 - very distorted announcer with ID and email.  Then "Going Up the Country"
0049 - maybe bits of Star-Spangled Banner on guitar.  Very distorted.
0050 - ID and 'Thanks for tuning in', then off.  Announcer audio very distorted also.

Thanks for the tunes!

Catching pieces of music being played using SDR Console V2 in DSB mode coming up out of the noise at about a S4. That's about it. :-\

Tuned in at 0020utc, now playing "dirty love" by Frank Zappa, DSB causes slow heterodyne between the 2 recovered audios, R8 & dipole.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Got it here in Omaha now hearing Blondie.  Audio is very distorted regardless of Upper or Lower side band.  Signal, though, is strong.  ID around 0034.
Also heard what sounded like Johnny Cash, Blondie, and Canned Heat.
Short cut of "Star-Spangled Banner" performed by Hendrix into ID and s/off ~0051 with op saying something like "It's martini time"?

s6 here but DSB doesn't work on my Elad S2 for some reason so LSB it is because it sounds better... [switched to ECSS after thinking about it... PERFECT copy!]

[Still listening to IBC on 6970 which is getting stronger here]

Heard Star Spangled Banner and station ID at sign off. Signal was a little rough for some reason, maybe local conditions. Probably S7 to S9.

Thanks for the show.

  Radio Ga Ga, my first time, chasing Ga Ga for months, HFU Chat tip: 6930 DSB, 20 mins before greyline starts, 0015 Z "Black Friday" Steele Dan, 0016 Z "Buffalo Soldier" Bob Marley, 0019 Z om with ID, 0021 Z "Dirty Love" Frank Zappa, 0025 Z "End Of The Line" The Traveling Wilburys, 0030 "Eyes Without A Face" Billy Idol, 0035 Z short burst of SSTV (Radio Ga Ga's ???), 0044 Z "Raw Power" Iggy Pop, 0050 Z om with ID, then off. S6 signal, audio distorted. Best in ECSS USB to clean up the received audio. Thank you very much, worth the long wait  :o
