2300 Tuned in live. Very weak, SIO 222?

Now listening to the SDR recording...

2258 Dickweed talking about his pre-diabetic diagnosis, problems with trying to go vegan (going vegan is unfortunately a great way to get pre-diabetes or make it worse). Then into the music
2353 Talking about not being into Christmas.  Much stronger signal now, SIO 444.

0030 Very odd - no signal here, no signal in Berthoud Colorado at a kiwi SDR there, but just a little bit further north, Fort Collins SDR's are copying the signal. So that's how I'm listening. Thanks for the show!
0037 now tuned in via Elida OH kiwi SDR where the signal is much better, but finally copying some audio on my own equipment.
0104 Audio seems OK to me....

Tuned into 4185 USB at 0030 Radio Free Do Whatever's old frequency and was surprised to heat the legendary
DJ Dickweed and Radio Free Whatever live with some great tune. I love this cover of Melt With You.
Thank you for the tunes DJDW and if have can you play the classic. Yoko Ono's Walking On Thin Ice or some
Hoodoo Gurus. Happy Holidays in the bunker and DO NOT EAT the fruit cake there.

DAMN YOUR SIGNAL IS NOT FADING HERE IN FACT IT IS SOUND BETTER NOW THAN LIKE 30 MINS AGO.
