Great signal tonight. Start up at 0043z and still on with various musical selections. S-7-9 very little noise tonight.

Corrected the frequency.

Whoever this is is putting a S9+10 signal into NH this evening and the audio sounds great.

Playing WYFR ID clips but the music is definitely not WYFR-like.  Sounds like a collection of tunes from one female vocalist.

0122z WFMT ID, thanks - into WYFR ID clip
0123z Iron Butterfly - Most Anything You Want
0126z Iron Butterfly - Flowers and Beads
0129z Iron Butterfly - Are You Happy?
0133z WFMT ID and then WYFR ID clip
0136z "Don't Feel Bad Girl, Little Bad Girl"

0148z Michelle Branch/Santana - The Game of Love

Here's a nice SDR screen capture by emma, a #pirateradio attendee:

0158z Three Dog Night - Out In the Country
0203z Off

Thanks for the show!

Really making a good impression tonight here too, with high energy dance music right now and a wideband signal nearing FM quality.  Signal is mostly S9, sometimes peaking to 10 over, very crisp and clear.  Best I've heard in a long time.  Thanks for the show!

Carrier first noted at 0020 UTC, some music starting at 0028, tones (many over-modulated) starting at 0033 (not sure if this was QRM from another station), WFMT ID at 0042.

Really nice wide audio.

Off 0202 UTC.

I heard this on Saturday night, the music was really good, the signal S9 here in Nova Scotia and I wished I had a wider filter than 6khz on my Palstar radio to catch the full audio quality.  Hope Family Radio returns for another broadcast sooner rather than later, they made a very good impression on me.

Here's a recording I made of the reception with the filters opened up to 20 khz, it's a little over an hour long:

I really enjoyed the broadcast too!
