2000 UTC Getting some threshold audio here but mostly deep in the noise and not quite enough to shazam or ID the music
2012 UTC Sounds like an Anita Baker song I forgot the name of....

Hi Gentleman, good day to you all.
i am surprised you are receiving anything at all considering its at 50 watts and that the fof2 is not optimal for 6.880Mhz.
either way, there are certain areas that i am reaching quite well on a consistent basis despite this but the area of coverage is very narrow as to be expected.
i miss the days at 5.150Mhz as it worked so well but the antenna just isnt stable enough with the wind and keeps falling apart and getting damaged.
have a great day Fellas ;)
