thanks for tuning in !  8)
this is really just another stability test today at 50W, mix of 80's music, transmit audio frequency response is 20Hz to 10Khz with 75uS pre-emphasis.
the new and improved Hack RF board works great as well as the latest version of SDR Angel.
also thanks to my very good friend here in the forums who designed and constructed a LPF for the Hack RF (excellent build quality) to significantly reduce the 2nd harmonic generated from it, now there is a LPF on the input and output of the 1st stage driver amplifier running at 50W (more efficient), eventually i will get around to calibrating and configuring the 2nd stage amplifier, the Henry 3K-A to operate at 500W and then perform another stability daytime test.
have a great friday and great weekend !  8)
last song of the day (Echoes) timed to end right at 2200UTC - thanks for listening  8)

Tuned in at 1808 with Tull and Aqualung, then Broken Wings. Very good signal here...headphones not necessary. Nice to listen while I work. Read the HFU at lunch as always, and couldn't believe it!

Thank you Relay Station!

2003 UTC - Playing Bowie - Ziggy Stardust

Friday afternoon is usually the best time of the work week, but this one has been even better with this much appreciated broadcast. Thanks especially for the Moody Blues songs! Signal is unbelievably steady and quite strong.
