Radio Gaga on 6935 USB Aug 03 @ 0115
Discussion about Planet 420 - covered with weed,  Station ID into some blues.  Good signal strength but distorted audio on music.
Thanks, Remfo, for double sideband info.
S/off @ 0153 after Lady GaGa's rendition of US National Anthem.
Thanks for the enjoyable show.

S7 in Illinois

DSB-SC mode (double sideband suppressed carrier)? But only sounds good in either LSB or USB, but no low end in the audio

Nice RadioGaGa, have not heard you here in a while.  Tonight you are S6 to S7 and usable.  Full DSB and pretty well balanced, the USB looks slightly better on the waterfall, but I can't detect a real difference between USB and LSB by ear.

About an SIO 222 at sign on, improving to SIO 444 later in the transmission. Easy to ID with that DSB signal  ;D
