6925 @0409z Undercover Radio
« on: March 31, 2012, 0421 UTC »
Pretty sure I heard Dr. Benway pop above the noise ~@0409z
SINPO 34233
QRN Static is just horrendous here
0417z ID "This is Dr. Benway on Undercover Radio" - expression of preserving freedoms, especially freedom of the airwaves!!!
0430z Shoutout to Your Truly!?!
0440z ~Static easing a bit here & signal climbing!!!
0450z Talking about building his first dipole & plugging it into an HT-40 "with a PERFECT MATCH"???
LOL, right!!! Never happens that way for most of us!!! I can identify with studying about antennas Benway. I learned alot by reading, then doing it!
When I started listening to SW [age of 10] I nailed my wires into trees because I didn't know what insulators did on antenna. I also used steel detonator cable for elements, cause I had no copper & was too young to buy any!!!

0527z Report from Brian in New Zealand? !WOW!
0529z "The Solomon Islands" segment

FYI: His email is undercoverradio@gmail.com NOT @mail.com <-- old tape LOL

Still on @0500z, revised SINPO 55455 [Quite a good recovery!]

Thanks Dr. Benway!!!

Hearing Undercover Radio here as well, 6925, Dr Benway with a monologue, contact info, segue into 20th anniversary show. Chatting about early history as Progressive Music Radio.  Fair to good signal here at home on the indoor fugloop, not too much static.
0527z: Dr. Benway on live, shout-out to Brian in New Zealand.  Sounds like the ionosphere is cooperative tonight for DX.

Fair to good overall to the indoor fugloop, lots of ups and downs but no more static than usual here.

0530z: Another classic Undercover Radio program, this one the doctor's reminiscences of South Pacific adventures.  Dr. Benway's consciousness was downloaded to a bio chip (like cyberpunk princess Esther in the X-Files "Kill Switch" episode?).
0550z: Shout out to Fansome.  Better check his license before taking him up on that offer.
0620z: Dr. Benway monolog about alien encounter.  (Doc, before you pick up that 12 gauge, remember the aliens have death rays.  Also, they evaporate into green vapor after you kill 'em, so you won't have any souvenirs.)
0624z: Doc says this is an historic broadcast for him, signal reports from all over the world.  I can confirm independently there are folks hearing you in New Zealand.
0630z: Burroughs monolog, dig it, hep cats.

Great show and signal.  Was comparing my own reception with web tuners and my peaks at home were nearly as good as tuners with good outdoor antennas.  Just more fades on the fugloop and the usual household white noise RFI, no serious QRN here.

Wow, impressive. I checked Perseus servers around N.A. and also Europe. Of course the signal was very strong all over N.A. servers. The signal was also very strong in Iceland, GB and other parts of Europe. Even Italy, but weak at that receive location. Could not be heard in Japan. Nice job U.R. ;)

Heard Dr. Benway signing on at 0410 with a couple of "Hello Radio"s, talking about being on 1710 kHz earlier but cx were too noisy there. Rambling thoughts like  "don't you all wish you could start over?" Played his 20th Anniv Broadcast at 0435.
Nice signal here. SIO: 444
Receiver: Eton E1, JRC NRD-525, 535 and 545, Icom IC-7300
