DJ Dickweed up asking for HFU reports.

Good signal, first heard you on 6969 if the matters.

Dickweed moved to 6935 because of Link 11 on 6970. There is a station on 6933 so he is now on 6955.

21:41 UTC - Nice S7 signal into my location;
21:47 UTC - Station ID. Sometimes peaking to S8. Appears to be +/- 4.2 kHz wide bandwidth;
21:50 UTC - Taking a short break to fix RF in audio path issue;
21:57 UTC - Now on 6955.0 kHz;
22:09 UTC - I just hit a deep fade period and completely lost the signals in this portion of the band. Current conditions of the magnetic field: Unsettled;
23:00 UTC - The signal is still burried in the noise floor into my location;
23:10 UTC - Station ID: Radio Free Whatever. Conditions are starting to improve. Just went from an S4 ~ S5 to S7 ~ S8 and I can now switch back to 4.2 kHz bandwidth;
23:17 UTC - Shout-outs to HFU listeners;
23:26 UTC - The band is opening up nicely. The signal is now well above S9;
00:05 UTC - Shout-outs to the recent HFU listeners. Radio Free Whatever is dominating the band this evening;
01:32 UTC - Station ID. Still going on strong and king of the band this evening;
02:00 UTC - Hitting some signal fade out now. Down to about an S6 and getting noisy;
02:25 UTC - Signal is almost gone now. Weak and unreadable;
02:30 UTC - Can barely hear DJ Dick Weed speak about conditions and time to go. The band is slowly improving.
02:35 UTC - "Good night everybody". End of broadcast.

Thank you for the stelar extended show, 5 hours!
