RFW 6945 0028 UTC 07 Jul 2016
« on: July 07, 2016, 0029 UTC »
Signing on with Russian Nat. Athem. S4 to S5 and noisy copy so far.
Audio not so good tonight.  Goes out to 4khz, but most of the energy is above 2khz, so tinny/squeaky sounding.

Sounding a little better @ 0054 and deteriorated a little at 0056.  Lots of deep bass and high mids now.  Not too bad.
I will try to get a screen shot of the audio, but it will be noisy.

0104 - sounding a lot better, noisy copy tonight makes it difficult to make good audio judgements.
0110 - sounding very good now, other than noisy copy.
0123 - "Soft Shock" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs [Shazam ID].  Up to S6 now.
0149 - off.  Goodnight comrades!
Thanks for the tunes.
