Tuned in since about 2135, had to hunt around for a suitable SDR but K3FEF NE Pennsylvania on the web SDR network is doing best. (I have it tuned to 6941.05 USB for best sounding demodulation.) Heard the end of Metallica's "Whiskey In The Jar" into a couple of SSTV's.


Not sure what happened with this one.


2142 Enya "Pilgrim"
2144 The Dubliners "Whiskey in the Jar'
2146 The Dubliners "The Wild Rover"
2149 Dermot O'Brien "Four Green Fields"
2152 OM came on, Patrick the DJ speaking of his granddaughter, coming from castle of Argyle, into unshazamable Celtic punk song about going to Ireland.
       Signal starting to drop out.
2156 brief two second snippet of another song but signal cut out. A couple of additional attempts at transmitting before signal came back. Weaker now.
2157 Dropkick Murphys "Rose Tattoo" signal OK now but still fading.
2158 signal off suddenly
2200 back on, signal is OK again, The Dubliners "The Foggy Dew"
2203 OM speaking of Irish/English history, focusing on the rise of Irish independence.
2206 SSTV sent but OM also still speaking. Patrick broke in to apologize and blame the banshee for that. Not sure if he's still being heard (you are, at least by me), and the SSTV started again at 2207. (Only half the image of a young redhaired man with his hand on his face sent, and it wasn't saved.)
2208 SSTV (same as earlier image)


2210 Enya "Lazy Days"
2212 OM speaking, talking about his Irish accent. Sang a capella song>
2213 unshazamable Irish folk song (OM singer, guitar)
2215 signal cut out again

Thanks for the show, hopefully you'll be back later. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

2133 Listening to a variety of Irish music including a rock version of "Whiskey in the jar," Clancy Brothers version of the same song (personal favorite - thanks!), "Wild rover,"  2 SSTV after first song.  My decodes were fair.

S5 with clear signal.

This came back on at some unknown point. Was listening at NE Penn SDR but it was actually much better at sigma kiwi SDR on the MA/CT border. 2254 Patrick gave sign off message, said he wasn't sure anyone was listening, but the signal was hitting some NE spots well. The Dubliners "Whiskey In The Jar" and then another son at 2257.
2300 Still going strong in spite of the message from Patrick.
2302 Patrick reporting that sparks were coming out of his antenna. Had to fix things up and lower power.
2303 Going to rebroadcast second half of show because of previous problems.
2317 signal finally making it to Colorado. SSTV but I was tuned elsewhere and couldn't catch it.
2341 OFF
