Ball Smacker Radio 6960 AM 0345 UTC 9 May 2020
« on: May 09, 2020, 0348 UTC »
Station in AM for the last 30 minutes at least at fair level.  Sometimes fading up to something identifiable.  Shazam can't help me with the music.  Actually measuring on 6959.975.  Don't see anyone else reporting this tonight, so far.
03:52  Singing in the Rain....that's an easy one!
03:58:  Talk by YL or higher pitched OM.  Too much noise to make out an ID, though.

Hearing something at 0353 on the Tecsun PL660.
Switch to a tabletop unit for possible better reception.
In Broadcast Announcement section Ball Smacker posted tonight's earlier show will be replayed again on 6960 AM at 0300.

It's being heard here in Alberta as well.   Poor to fair signal with fades.   Think I was hearing "Singing in the Rain" when I first caught it at 0351.   Heard some letters spelled out during possible ID at 0358.
QTH: Alberta, Canada
Perseus SDR, Wellbrook Phased Array

Ball Smacker Radio. Not super strong here in N Florida tonight but listenable. Loud hum on audio during female announcer ID and promo.

Prop not as good as last weekend.
