Spider Radio 10/15/08
« on: October 15, 2008, 2105 UTC »
I am receiving Spider Radio from Greece on Wednesday, October 15 on 6925 USB, beginning at about 2048 UTC with John Lennon's "Imagine" followed by a horn piece, and then into SSTV at 2100 UTC. Appeared off by 2105. Signal is weak but readable, and I was given the ID by someone on the hfunderground.com chat room. No ID was actually heard during the transmission.

I heard Spider this afternoon, 10/16 at around 2100z. Very weak, but it was there. Heard some SSTV, but it was too noisy for a decode.

Conditions should improve as we move further into Fall.
