Radio Free Whatever 6925 USB 2208 UTC 9 Feb 2019
« on: February 09, 2019, 2209 UTC »
2208 UTC Sounds like RFW opening tune? Very weak here unfortunately  :(
2213 UTC I can just make out DJ Dickweed's voice in the noise
2214 UTC "Need A Little Time"-Courtney Barnett (Shazam able to pull this one out of the noise!)
2219 UTC Sounds like a cover of "Hungry Like the Wolf"
2223 UTC "Spiked Flower"-Swervedriver per Shazam
2226 UTC "King of the Dudes"-Sunflower Bean (Signal up ever so slightly now)
2229 UTC "Weird Ways"-Strand of Oaks (Moving the S-meter now!)
2233 UTC Lost the signal completely  :(

He's coming in pretty strong in MN. Sounds like he's reading the forum but isn't on the Rocket Chat. There are more people on the chat reporting they can hear him.

Started out strong but has faded down to about S4 @ 2215.
2217 - fading back up [yay!] "Need A Little Time" Courtney Barnett
2219 - S7 with "Hungry Like The Wolf" Muse [nice!]
2235 - "This Is Music" The Verve.  S8 peaks with some occasional deep fades.
2243 - Dick Weed talking about propagation, S7 with occasional fades.
2247 - seems to be off now
