Weak signal here in eastern Nebraska.  Rock music @ 0125 but npt sure what it is.
BAD TO THE BONE @ 0128.^
Hearing brief clips ofnumerous rock muisic songs but no ID yet.
Possible ID  @ 0142 by male anncr but too deep in noise floor to hear.
ID'D as Unidentified Radio by other HFU  listeners.  Still not clearly heard here.
Just caught station ID @ 0150.
Huge improvement in signal by 0205.

UnIdentified Radio 6940, 6940 USB, 0120, 12/26/17.  Elvis into harder rock, some talk along the way but couldn't make any of it out.  Series of "Welcome to Unidentified Radio, 6040" ID's at 0144 into more rock.

Went to do an errand and came back at 0209 with station off.

S6 in a local TV noise blob here.

Booming in to N. Alabama at 0226 w/ Hip-Hop music, then "Mistress At Christmas" by AC/DC, 3 IDs w/ Hotmail address at 0237.  Bing & Andrews Sisters "Winter Wonderland", then began switching songs rapidly from the Andrews Sisters to Cake to Bing to Buck Cherry, Union Underground, and more.  Keeps cutting songs short, and abruptly switching, with very little continuity.  But, there are frequent IDs, and still a great signal at 0305.

Great signal with no fading or drift.
