Relay Station 6880 AM 1638 UTC 25 Oct 2018
« on: October 25, 2018, 1640 UTC »
The Relay Station - Relay Station 6880 kHz 6.880 MHz tuned in via Westminster, MD KiwiSDR - the usual killer 20 kHz wide bandwidth AM broadcast quality wide AM signal SIO 555 S7-S9 with peaks at S9+10db around tune in time. 

Beautiful AM signal on the waterfall, exactly 20 kHz wide with carrier right on 6880.0 kHz - top notch work as usual, Relay Station!

1638 UTC - Cage The Elephant - Come A Little Closer
1641 UTC - Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?
1643 UTC - Unfortunately I'm home for lunch and won't be able to listen for much longer
1645 UTC - a few seconds of unmodulated carrier - S9 carrier without any modulation

thanks R4002, this is just my usual random daytime broadcast at 50W playing some good tunes and listening to them from Chris' excellent Kiwi SDR while i work.
this coming Halloween though, i am 95% sure i wont be broadcasting as i will be listening instead, i expect activity to be pretty busy at around 0000z.
enjoy your lunch and the rest of the work day R4002 ;) - friday is almost here.

1720 Good afternoon   :) S9 from a Virginia SDR.  Nice music source. Good hearing you again with your great sounding AM station. Halloween night should be a interesting one to listen to.

1742: TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES 😱
yup - this is because of windows XP which has no built in, up/down resampler like win7/10 does, if you set your win7/10 soundcard to 48Khz, all sources inputting to it with sample rates above/below 48Khz are automatically resampled to 48Khz.
its currently an issue that i should consider using a software resampler for tracks that are sampled differently than the current setting of 48Khz, the only problem is the introduction of additional latency and CPU use.
99% of the tracks i have are at 48Khz so its not a serious issue at the moment.

good afternoon to you too.
yes, Halloween evening should be very interesting - i plan on listening, not broadcasting.
im looking forward to hearing all of the OP's broadcasting their shows but hopefully leaving 6880Khz "open" for a special one.

I agree. I have checked out past halloween shows from Utube and found them creative.
