6940AM Stereo *0127 - 0206*
« on: September 10, 2012, 0145 UTC »
10 Sep 2012

In C-QUAM stereo.  About S7 to S9 here, rolling fades, generally quiet.

0127 "Pennies From Heaven", Police - ""Fields of Gold"
0152 "Godzilla"
0205 Audio and/or tranny problems; intermittent audio, then off

Trying Sodira with the SDR-IQ, and while it seems to work OK, any heavy loading on the CPU and it spazzes out.
Recorded about 0140 - 0200, and will post later.  Fairly good reception early on, started getting choppy with pilot drop after 0155.

Thanks Stereo Mystery Pirate!
Hope no major problem with  your gear.

Audio:  From around 0140:    http://www.mediafire.com/?5zid7y3epc5d1or

I have edited out some horrendous sounds due to Sodira crashing.

Even though it was a rather quiet night regarding storm noise, the recording is still a bit hissy, probably due to my relative unfamiliarity with the Sodira controls and their practical capabilities.  Still, the audio captured in the first part of the show (mono, using SDR-Radio) has about the same S/N ratio as this stereo capture.

SDR catch, 0127z sign on.  About S8 signal. I guess I need to add a C-QUAM demodulator to my SDR playback app :-)
