Tater Patch R 1630 // 1710 2238 UTC 7 Dec 2019
« on: December 07, 2019, 2245 UTC »
Haven't heard an ID yet, but it's the only station I know of that runs these two freqs in parallel. Very strong on 1630 (but bad QRM from KCJJ). Fair on 1710. Sounding great on the R-390A. Much better MW reception with this radio than I've ever had here with the R-8, WinRadio, or R-5000

Mostly just dead carrier now (2249) on 1710, but occasionally a bit of audio jumps in. Bad audio cable?

Clear promo/ID on 1630 at 2255

Heard T.P.R. around 02:47UTC, 1710AM, during drive home. Starship - We Built This City, then caller bitching about, everything. Heary, heavy fading. Tough copy most of the time.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
