The Crystal Ship 6850.4 AM 2356 UTC
« on: October 04, 2012, 2357 UTC »
The Crystal Ship just opened on 6850.4 AM at 2356 UTC with snippets of the Doors and "Bottle of Rum". Not terribly strong, but a copy-able S8-ish with a kind of high noise level tonight.

Technical difficulties at around 0002 UTC (10/5)? Audio is gone but carrier is still there.

Sig started weak, but getting decent now with "Hooked on a Feeling" and now the Juliana Montana promo.
Thanks for the show!
