VO Captain Ron Shortwave 6930USB *0130 -
« on: April 16, 2012, 0202 UTC »
Trying hard to hear this, but I'm essentially ringed in by storms tonight.  Alternating unid music and OM ann.  Op talking abt audio problems and Plan A and Plan B.  0145 went off, and came on executing Plan B.  Asking for listener feedback.  The mike audio is good, but hard to hear due to QRN.  Music audio is thin.

Thanks for the shout!

0211 Music audio seems better.  Still tons of storm noise.  
0215 VO Captain Ron ID, gonna get some Radio Therapy going

Gettin' better here, lil by lil
Thanks for the show, Captain Ron!

I have him here through all of the static. Says that of he was normal he wouldn't be out here with a shortwave transmitter, "but I'm not, so I am." Couldn't copy the email address he gave, captainron@ something...

Familiar sounding song, but I can't place it.

SIO 322

Update: heard the address that time. Thanks for the repeat and the shoutout, Captain!
