Unid: 6925U, 7/20, 0300 UTC
« on: July 20, 2012, 0302 UTC »
Weak signal in high static crashes. Pretty similar in quality to my receptions of The Machine & Stone Circles Radio over the past two days. I have my doubts that I'll be able to pull an ID out of it, although I can tell that it's music and not talk.

Please QSL to: POB 109, BRS, PA 17214

just below the noise level at my location at 03:09 UTC. it does sound like music, sounds like country type music but deep in the noise making it tough to ID at 0320 UTC
definately sounds country male signing at 0326 UTC have not caught any ID yet. Deep in the noise level for the most part. Bad conditions but thanks for the show.
I also heard the female and "shortwave pirate" with an email but did not catch ID.
e-qsl appreciated: hvazquez2@hotmail.com

I am receiving them at around an S3 in W. Texas. I am being plagued with some pretty heavy static crashes. I have heard 3 ID's but have yet to understand any of them. I am hearing a country song but the signal is so low near the noise that my soundhound application can't get enough of the song to ID it. My apologies to the Op. Conditions are pretty bad. Thank you though!
0335z - Another ID by a female but I still can't make it out. All I picked out of it was "dot com"... Sorry!

Recorder catch:

6925 USB SIO 322

Fair copy with noisy conditions and some fading - haven't had time to go through full mp3 yet, but wasn't able to get positive copy on any of the ID's so far.  Could hear the Op's voice, but too far in the noise to make out anything.

02:54z-03:35z UNID show kicking off with country music song

Recorder catch on 6925USB starting at 0300, although seemed to be on for a few minutes prior to 0300.

Basically a musical program with periodic IDs and addy by a (possibly) automated YL voice.  Tentative IDs at 0302 and 0313.  Definite IDs at 0321 and 0335z for The Machine.  Off after the 0335z ID.

Addy was given as themachineshortwave@gmail.com.

Weak but audible even with some off-tuning.  Signal seemed to become stronger as the program progressed.

Audio (from 0300z):    http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?3sami13tcpn03qs

Thanks Machine!
