SYCKO Radio 4101 USB 0017z UTC 26 MAR 2020

SYCKO Radio id at 0016z. Not a bad signal just a lot of noise to contend with.

Thanks I'm really enjoying the Big Band era music.

Faint signal deep in the static,
Sounded like a piece of music to the tune "When Johnny Comes Marching Home."
Losing broadcast in the noise with occasional peaks out of the muck.
Close to local sunset;  hoping for signal to get better.

Tuned in at 0034, poor weak signal, barely hear audio under noise, heard applause just before 0042utc then talk, now music from 30's or 40's, sounds like an old radio program, was away from set for an hour watching covid19 program on PBS, still on at 0200 and still weak signal.

Good signal fading out at times, but averaging S8. Thanks for the show again.

Maybe Muddy Waters? Saw them in concert at Clemson U. in maybe 1973. He opened for Deep Purples Smoke on the Water tour.
Hendrix
Canned Heat
Rare Earth

Great stuff tonight.

I think off at 0350 utc-ish. Good music for the last hour. Good Dire Straits tunes. I think this was Sycko Radio, but I'm not sure.

Pretty sure I had this station as well, if that's indeed who was still going at 0310Z.  Playing Dire Straits "Walk Of Life", then some slow jazzy somethingorother I didn't recognize.  Signal peaking to good, fair overall in high local static.  I tuned to 4100kHz on a complete whim and, with a little careful tuning on sideband, got a pleasant surprise!
