WTF Shortwave 6960 USB 2329 UTC 13 OCT 2018
« on: October 13, 2018, 2329 UTC »
2329 not very strong, sounds like rock or blues music
2333 ID (thanks to Refmo who heard it clearly) into more rock
2345 signal seems low everywhere. I tried various online SDR's east of the Mississippi to little avail.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
