154 UTC 6955 USB very strong signals in central NY state with OM giving ID in mock Eastern European accent, "Radio Free Vatevah" into hip-hop with YL vocal. 157-new song. 0200--"Are you ready to hit the road..then let's do it!....This is Radio Free (then YL voice) Whatever".  New song. Last two songs sounded British, but I can't get the lyrics. SIO 555

Solid S9 here. Appreciate the wider-than-average bandwidth. I used to listen to RFW all the time when I was a teenager. Glad to see the signal is still strong in this part of the world.  ;D

2:30 - Give me my internet, Elon Musk! (Last year I had to build a whole radio system for my family to extract an LTE connection over a troposcatter link. I know the feeling, DJ!)

Came across at around 21:55 6955khz USB. DJ Dick Weed with good signal avg. S5 from the Heart Of Dixie. Very good SSB audio estimating 2.7k wide. Off the beaten path rock and pop songs. Some cleaver banter and nicely produce Station Jingles. Didn't write down any of the songs. Will start making better notes. First Log Here. Listening with good ham gear and lengthy wire antenna.
