Robin Hood Radio 6930 USB 0234 UTC 7 FEB 2021
« on: February 07, 2021, 0234 UTC »
Good signal from Robin Hood Radio tonight.
Station and ID and into music.

Thanks for the shout-out.

     

Your extra 25% has made a big difference here. This is the best that I have heard you in a very long time.

Just to clarify my comment. The op had mentioned that he was able to increase his transmitter power by 25% and it made a difference tonight.

At 0243 extremely weak under increased snow static level, barely hear occasional bits of audio under the mud,

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

0239 Barely audible music with loud data bursts for the first several minutes, then Robin Hood talking but indistinct.  Suddenly popped in at a decent level with more talk including a quick ID before fading back down to barely audible music.

Started out barely audible, then fair, fading back to barely audible.  Can't count on the propagation tonight.

0419: Unknown song, sounded like it had a lot echo.  Signal just above the noise here in NE Indiana. SINPO 25342
0420: Robin Hood Radio ID followed by more speaking
0422: Sounds like some kind of reggae tune.  Signal came up a little bit
0425: Robin Hood Radio ID with the last tune.  Believe he said it was "The Flash" and hopes we are all staying warm. SINPO 35343
