6925 am RTN
« on: September 16, 2012, 0054 UTC »
Weak signal in high noise . Playing what sounds like a French Folk tune  ??

Qsb brings it up at times. Down again but still there.

Just heard a ID RTN  very hard to make out but I heard it.

Signal is getting better and enjoying the 1960's French Canadian tunes I should know who this is but cannot place it.

Thanks for the shout out. Listening tonight on my new wireless Sennheisers headphones. Can putter around outside and listen in . Love it.

Thanks for the ID, NRS.  Been following this since apparent 0035 s/on.  It's a very quiet night here, the quietest since the winter, but the sig is still S3 on an S3 floor.  Not really fading up yet, but def music here.

Sig picked up a bit; 0111 OM tx - poss RTN ID - then off.

Thanks RTN!

Some very weak audio heard here, and the carrier went off just before 0112z, so I suspect this was RTN. Very early for props to eastern USA, so I would not expect much of a signal this time of the evening.

At 0037gmt. on 6.925 (usb) first heard "Dominique" by the Singing Nuns, that song came out in the early 1960's, followed by what sounded like another song by same group. The signal was weak but no fading... .Didn't catch an i.d. but assuming post belongs here.          ::)
