Calvin Coolidge 9025 AM 1300-1400 UTC 20 Mar 2018
« on: March 20, 2018, 1952 UTC »
These types of stations tend to disappear quickly & no one logged it in the past two days, so I thought I missed it. I remembered to turn on the radio this morning before work & I let the recorder run. Just checked the recording. Around 1300, the Coolidge clips started to come through & lasted for about an hour before fading out. The mast of my inverted V got taken out in the first Nor'easter this month, so I'm sure it's not working optimally. Signal was fair at best. BTW, I'd never have figured out that this was Calvin Coolidge just from his voice.

I tuned over at 2040, there was nothing, and so I tuned to some signal at 9051 (sounds like some kind of channel marker) when I noticed that 9025 was on after all.  Still on as of 2045, but fading deep.

My recording at 2042. Not very strong here either.
