UNID 6925 KHz AM Folk/Irish Music 0220 UTC+
« on: March 18, 2012, 0236 UTC »
Just turned on the radio, hearing what sounds like blue grass and irish music.  Haven't heard any ID's yet.

236 Hearing OM, static crashes making it difficult to get any copy out of it.
239 Back into music.
248 "White Bird"
254 "The Lumpy Gravy Radio Show"
258 Hot Tuna - Baby, What You Want Me to Do

Been listening to them for a while, but unsure who it is.

Gave email address, but with fading & static crashes only heard .net at the end.

Lots of static crashes disrupting what would otherwise be a very nice signal.

0250Z 45232 S8 It's a Beautiful Day "White Bird"
0253Z 45231 S8 Some IDs... heard WBCQ again. Also "Radio Free" something.
0257Z 45233 S9 Hot Tuna "Baby What You Want Me To Do"
0309Z 45233 S9 ID "Lumpy Gravy Radio Show" on WBCQ. Mentioned the re-transmission on 6925.
0322Z 45233 S9 Led Zeppelin "In The Evening"
0340Z 45333 S9 The Meteors "Those Boots Were Made For Walking"
0348Z 35232 S8 Eric Dolphy "Out There"

0504Z 25222 S7 ID As Radio Free Euphoria on WBCQ.
0523Z Off air

6925 is a simulcast of 5110.

5110 is very weak.

6925: Perseus SDR + 102' G5RV @25'
5110: National NC-183D + 100' random wire

Hearing it loud (S-7 to S-9) in northern Canada but tough copy to fades and static. I'll post any developments.
Please QSL to MaplRadio@gmail.com

Next weeks contest: guess how many Volkswagons can fit in Joy Behars mouth. I pick five.

I have WBCQ 5110 on the NRD-535 and 6925 AM on the NRD-545 it sure sounds like a simulcast to me. Both stations struggling in the static tonight.
