Baa Baa Radio 6925 USB 0001 UTC 25 DEC 2018
« on: December 25, 2018, 0002 UTC »
0001 Fair signal with 40's sounding music, YL vocals
0005 paused, or off
0007 back, with OM announcer. Can't quite understand what he's saying
0009 "Baba Radio," more music still sounding like Billie Holiday
0012 a bit of a break, then more music, sounding more recent.
0020 signal occasionally gains strength but then fades again. Probably won't keep posting updates unless it comes up and stays up consistently. Darn you, propagation gods. Anyway, thank you for the show and happy holidaze to you, Baba Radio
0022 I couldn't hear it well, but per Skipmuck the OM said it's "Baa Baa Radio... like the sheep." Updating thread. Hearing "Sledgehammer" Peter Gabriel
0027 "Second Hand News" Fleetwood Mac
0030 OM speaking

Hearing the same @ 0004; YL w/ blues music. Signal only an S2 here in Idaho, but the magnetic loop does much better picking up weak signals with less noise than my sloper ever did.

At 0029utc I got nothing in Chicagoland, just low background noise.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

323 from Anna, TX online SDR from 0022.  Also audible from Albuquerque online SDR.  Alas, inaudible at my Abq location with Tecsun and long wire--but then, that's pretty much the status quo.
