6931am 0049z "Outhouse Radio" *Verified* 7-13-2010
« on: July 13, 2010, 0050 UTC »
more to follow

Carrier approx 6931.6

0053z and - carrier gone now ... missed ID, was fiddling with tuning

0054z .. back ...

There is enough FM'ing of the carrier, that, LSB or USB demodulation yields a really funky sound ... AM demod is the way to go ...

I should add, with that much FM on the carrier AMS (AM-Synchronous) on the WinRadio WR-G303e _won't lock_ !

0058z signal dropped like a rock - could have been receiving via grayline propagation ... 0059z picking back up slightly now

Possible ID at 0100 but static is too heavy to copy.

Still there as of 0108, though unreadable in upstate SC, due to nearby storms producing a very high noise floor.  Carrier clearly heard, with program audio underneath the static.

0126z I think you've just been 'called out' by OR Mighty Camel ...

0138z Pgm continues ...

OR - pgm audio is seeing high IMD values (flat-topping, cross-over distortion et al - are the PA tubes showing anything brighter than a dull red?)

No PA tube huh ... Icom IC-4KL ? Not a IC-4KL either huh ...

Okay ... how many LDMOS transistors in the final stage .. is it high-level or low-level modulated AM?

Response: 'Not that many' ... since he won't say ...

Real response: " I know nothing! "

0204z OR, playing 'hard to get' on answering Q's about his xmtr, his PA stage, etc ...

Good pgm OR, a little distorted, high IMD on pgm audio, but good content ... thanks.

THD: Probaby 8 to 10%

IMD/3rd order products: -25 dB


0212z Possible sign-off coming up ... playing My Country Majesty now ...
