S9+ at 2349z. Mentioned having to change frequencies part way through the show. A really nice signal, and good audio. Hopefully the increased solar flux will keep the band open a bit longer tonight.
S9+40 now at 0011z on the NRD 545 and tilted folded dipole antenna.

Took a while to wade through the comments and see that it's on 6960 now. I was worried for a minute there! Getting it at about 343 right now. Lotsa QRM. 0004

Sorry I missed that you played a song by Failure. I got to see them at Riot Fest 2014 and they were terrific.

Getting good reception on the 750 without the external antenna. But better with.

0014 Yay for GBV!
0016 Tame Impala "Let It Happen"
0024 RFW ID, into Days of the New, "Shelf in the Room"
0028 DJ Dickweed on the mic. HFU shoutouts.
0032 QRM making it hard to follow what's happening here.
0033 email (djdickweed at gmail)
0034 OFF

Thanks for the show!

Again checked my tonight's Perseus SDR recording and discovered this one too!
Very noisy band here too heard only bits and pieces of music and talk on 6960 USB,
at about 00.24 UTC but illegible all of the stuff. Faded out lateron at about 00.30 UTC
Hopefully the next occasion propagation will be better again for more.
Thanks Dickweed for programme anyway. SINPO only 21221
QTH: NW Germany
RX: modified Sony ICF 2001D, Perseus SDR; KiwiSDR
ANT: dipole for 45mB
eQSLs highly appreciated! RainBrandy@gmx.net
