Radio Appalachia 6925 AM
« on: October 07, 2008, 0719 UTC »
10/6/08, Radio Appalachia, 6925 AM (closer to 6924.9 kHz)
0022-0045 UTC: Three Stooges "Quiet, numbskulls, I'm broadcasting!" and "Hello!  Hello!", several "Radio Appalachia" ID's; hillbilly music including "Amazing Grace".
SINPO - 31232, best signal I've heard for Radio Appalachia, but a mess of interference from at least two other stations near 6925 kHz.  Unclear whether deliberate or unintentional QRM, due to weird propagation, various listeners around country reporting very different signals.
0025z - QRM from Uncle Bob near 6925.5 USB, hollering into mic.
0032z - RA still audible but wiped out by stronger signal on 6925.5 USB (RJI)
0040z - Sheep "bah" sounds and synthesizer or midi keyboard tones, not RA or RJI.  Then strong carrier without modulation on 6927 turned on and off.
(N. Central TX)

3 minutes of Radio Appalachia, then faded out and overtaken by RJI on 6925.5 USB:
