Ball Smacker Radio 6950 AM 0147 UTC 08 Feb 2020
« on: February 08, 2020, 0151 UTC »
So far unided station, or I have not heard one, on 6950 AM.  Playing at least a portion of the song Wildfire, sounds to be a repeating bar from that song.

Heard starting about 01473 UTC, on 6950 AM, Feb 08, 2020.  About S5 into the Mojave Desert tonight so far.

I assume this is the interval signal for the upcoming Ball Smacker Radio transmission, if so I will change the title on first ID.

Music change at 0200 UTC into 80's rock.
