Unid 6929 AM 1855z 2/12/2017
« on: February 12, 2017, 1856 UTC »
Just tuned in to news about Chicago. Weak signal.
Seems to be a history of Al Capone.
Al Capone and we are coming up on Valentines Day, wonder if this is a coincidence?

Thanks R4002 I wasn't paying attention to the mode.

Off at 2028 with no ID heard.

Just tuned in at 1907 UTC to a spoken word drama with an S5 signal and deep fades into the noise. The front loading washing machine is generating lots of QRN at the moment, so tough copy here.

Pretty faint...but we are in the middle of heavy snow (This will be over 20 inches since Thursday)

1915z Some background music....OM talking, a lot of noise.

1926z Reception just peaked to completely audible tale of prohibition.

1928z Signal crashed under noise, thought they might be off air.

1930z Signal recovering to just over noise....OM talking in radio drama style
