RFW Relay 6925 AM 2356 UTC 2 Sep 2017

Tuned in to hear a spacey tune, then some announcements from DJ Dickweed.  He mentioned playing songs from the Foo Fighters and a new tune from Beck.  S8 in NY.

Tuned in at 0010utc, poor with some static from rain, heard Dick Weed talking, signed on to HFU and saw this is a relay, I retuned to 6965usb. R-2000 & dipole.
(edit) I have this 6925am on the RF-4900 now while 6965usb on the R-2000.
