Frequency: 6885
Mode: USB
Date:  7th October 2019
Time: 1900 - 1920 (sign off)
          2005 (tune-in) - seems to be back on again.
SINPO: 44444 via Uniontown PA sdr
Signal meter: S9 to 20 +

Excellent signal and most 1980's CHR with a flashback so often. Great mix of music

Thanks for the broadcast. BTW the 5000 MHz to 5300 MHz band is hot too - you always sound amazing too. Little UTE interference down there.

2302 "Genius of Love" Tom Tom Club. Sounds slightly off frequency, unless the music's a step down from what I remember. Song's almost over, signal is fair.
2304 MRI Mix Radio Int'l ID into next song
2309 "Take On Me" A-Ha
2319 "Rapture" Blondie
2322 "I Wanna Be a Lifeguard" Blotto (haven't heard this song in ages)
2334 "Modern Love" David Bowie
2336 "Deadbeat Club" The B-52s
2357 have this in the background while fixing dinner, but have heard 80s staples including Bananarama, Thomas Dolby, and currently INXS.

I was hoping that someone would be on, so that I could clean up the radio shack a bit more . . .  turned on the radio & there was a huge signal on 6885. A lot of pop & '80s new wave: Blondie, the Knack, B-52s, Flock of Seagulls, etc. Really nice to be entertained while I worked on the disaster area

"I Want To Be A Lifeguard" the anthem of swim teams across the country in the 70's. LOL!

I wonder if those seagulls are still running? Seems like a waste of wings.
