Thanks for the shout out via SSTV SKIPPY RADIO. Good signal tonight by the way here in Central Pennsylvania. Heard the early transmission with Born To Be Wild before the frequency shift to 6925 good metal block now.

SDR recording catch.
2301 "Stiff Upper Lip" AC/DC (partial, off by 2302)
2302 Some silence, quick snippet of something, more silence, then "Stiff Upper Lip" again.
2306 off
2307 back on with "Joker" Steve Miller Band
2311 "If You Wanna Get to Heaven" Ozark Mountain Daredevils
2313 "Flirtin' With Disaster" Molly Hatchet
2315 "Lowrider" War
2317 old rockin' honky tonk kinda southern fried rock song, but Shazam wasn't identifying it
2320 ominous kind of recurring synth sound - eventual guitar, Shazam says this is "Black Star" Lustmord
2322 novelty song about a pussycat.... clearly a euphemism ;)
2323 back to ominous sounds for a few seconds, then off

Signal was good to begin with but faded as time went on. Fair at best at the end.

2340 back on with country song about traveling the midwest. Minnesota mentioned most often. Shazam wouldn't identify it.
2342 sound effect like a bird, then off again. Signal was fair with some good peaks this time around.

Pretty good signal when it came back on:

0000 "Sultans of Swing" Dire Straits
0005 "Always" Bon Jovi
0013 "Winds of Change" The Scorpions
0019 song cut out, then SSTV sent.


0021 "The Unforgiven" Metallica
0027 "The Unforgiven II" Metallica
0034 "The Unforgiven III" Metallica
0042 SSTV


0044 "Whiskey in the Jar" Metallica
0048 "Country Party" Johnny Lee
0052 SSTV (Robot 36) and then QRT


Thanks for the show!
