WEAK Radio 6930U "war theme"
« on: August 11, 2010, 0222 UTC »
WEAK Radio
8/11/10
6930 USB
0155-0220z: Eclectic mix of rhythmic music with heavy bass line (Spanish?); C&W style parody song about the atom and nuclear bombs ("...Nagasaki, Alamogordo, Bikini..." in refrain) ; rambling monologue.  Some breaks in audio and occasional dead air.
0222z: Some other off-pitch audio mixed in now along with some spacey instrumental music, can't tell if same station or QRM from adjacent signal.
0233z: "...this is African..." and another voice "...I hate war..." the rest buried under local RFI.
0235z: Song with "Hear the marching, hear the drum, suppose they gave a war and nobody comes."
0237z: Baby crying.
0237z: WEAK Radio ID
0245z: WEAK ID
0306z: Still there with occasional clear peaks, but lots of fading to inaudible since around 0250z.
0345z: Sounds like Chris Cornell, not sure if solo, Soundgarden, Audioslave or other.
0347z: WEAK Radio ID
0430z: Off w/ WEAK ID, National Anthem followed by mellow instrumental and WEAK ID's after what sounded like some Patti Smith songs.  (Outdoors w/ portable, not taking notes.)

Same here, long rant about a contest between friends to determine who is more of a man, sounds like maybe King Missile?

0234z Something about an African tribal dance, and a war where no one came.
0236  "WEAK, WEAK Radio"

Big signal about S9+20 on peaks, great audio!

0252z Signal picking up, up to S6 on dipole now and copyable on loop again
