Dead City Radio 6925 USB 1916 UTC 5 May 2020
« on: May 05, 2020, 1929 UTC »
Only a S3-4 here

1917 - ID (om), Radio Change Our Lives (low audio but I think this is wahat he said)
1917 - Rob Zombie, Dead City Radio And The New Gods of Supertown
1920 - ID
1923 - Dave Allan & The Arrows, Blues Theme
1927 - ID
1927 - Dead City Radio And The New Gods of Supertown

1939 - ID (yl), "This is a test, Dead City Radio" (audio much louder and in the clear)
1940 - ID (yl) "Dead City Radio" (signal much stronger - S6)
1944 - email address given by electronic speech generator - anyone understand it? I assume it is deadcityradiopirate (at) gmail (dot) com
1954 - ID & address in the clear (yl)
2000 - ID (cw), DEAD CITY RADIO
2018 - now hearing ID (om) saying, "this is a demo...new pirate station...the email address is spookypirateradio (at) gmail (dot) com

I ran the email address thru a verifier and it comes back as a valid email address.

2035 - ID (om), "Our first test is going to hell. This is Dead City Radio"  (made me laugh - but your signal is now S9!)
2042 - SSTV Scottie 1 image



Good luck Dead City Radio. I hope you work out all the technical problems. And thanks for the afternoon tunes.

Sounded like an answering machine loop at 1938z. Good signal this afternoon.

"This is a test: Dead City Radio" station id three times at 1939z.

I have enjoyed your broadcast I don't think it went to hell.

Faint sounds of music heard here in Alabama. The signal is showing up in the waterfall. Great to actually hear part of a Dead City Radio broadcast.

SSTV signal heard and seen, but too weak for an image here.
All logs made from my own SDRs, boatanchors, and antennas
QTH: vicinity of Auburn, Alabama

please eQSL to: slowrollsandloops@gmail.com (thank you)

Hearing a very weak SSTV in the noise here at 2043 UTC, but nada on the decode
2100 UTC CW followed by SSTV which started decoding about half way through
( Sadly, the signal on the program is deep in the noise.....no copy  :( )
2122 UTC "Spooky"-Classics IV?
2125 UTC "Spooky"-Atlanta Rhythm Section?
2127 UTC CW, then SSTV
2133 UTC "Spooky"-Dusty Springfield
2134 UTC OM talking....heard the ".com" (There is a strong carrier on 6926 AM)
2137 UTC "Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown"-Rob Zombie
2138 UTC CW, then SSTV
2145 UTC I totally lost the signal.....

2120 UTC: Hearing a nice, strong SSTV signal via the NA5B SDR near Washington, D.C.
2121 UTC: "Spooky" by Classics IV. Sounds good!
2123 UTC: Male computer voice repeating "This is a demo ..." with ID and email address.
2124 UTC: "Spooky" cover by Atlanta Rhythm Section.
2126 UTC: Song cut off, then Morse code (I don't know Morse, so I can only guess it's the station ID in code).
2127 UTC: SSTV transmission, which I caught on my decoder app: Frankenstein-like monster holding a "Spooky Empire" sign.
2129 UTC: Same synth-voice ID as before, then a bouncy "spooky" song.
2131 UTC: Repeated ID as before, ending with "Enjoy the scary!", followed by another cover of "Spooky," this time by a female singer.
2134 UTC: ID repeated again, back into the same "spooky" dance song first played at 2129 UTC.
(Tuned out a minute to restart my phone)
2138 UTC: Morse code again, then a "Spooky Stories" graphic via SSTV transmission.
2141 UTC: ID repeated again, then an instrumental rock song (my Shazam app's not working right now).
2144 UTC: Off?

Welcome, Dead City Radio! There's a Clash song called "City of the Dead" that would be appropriate to play next time you're on.

Those two lines at 2141 and 2144 UTC (last edit was at 2145 UTC)
You're completely correct on that. Too little coffee in my system today, and I was rushing to type this during a work-from-home break, so I forgot how to tell time!  :)
