Damn Skippy 6950 to 6955 USB 2310 UTC 5 September 2020
« on: September 05, 2020, 2313 UTC »
Music in the noise with some QRM.
Seems off at 2318

Moved to 6955 at 2318 probably to get away from the noise on 6950.

2320z Moved to 6955 USB, Good signal S9+ in New Hampshire

Better at 6955 - Away from the worst of the UTE QRM, but it extends from 6947 to 6960
