Radio GaGa 6950 USB 0028z Feb 19, 2017
« on: February 19, 2017, 0029 UTC »
Big S9+10 signal in New Hampshire - audio seems choppy at times like a loose cable (or power dropping out in short blips?)

0028z Mustang Sally
0036z Radio GaGa ID
0040z Bob Seger And The Silver Bullet Band - Night Moves
0048z Still S9+, more Night Moves, and off, and back
0052z "T. Rex On Album Rock", T. Rex - Jeepster
0106z "Broadcasting from the center of Zipper Lake, Thanks for tuning in" and off

And as always, thanks to you GaGa

S7 @ 0035 with Radio GaGa ID, then "Desperado" by The Eagles.  Audio has some quick drop-outs.
0050 - "Elected" by Alice Cooper
0051 - "Jeepster" by T Rex.  S6 and less bass than before, but the audio drop-outs have ceased.
