The Beginning 6960 AM 2102 UTC 25 July 2021
« on: July 25, 2021, 2106 UTC »
UNID station with music 6960 AM at 2102 UTC. In and out of the noise here, about S5. I believe there was an ID given, but could not copy what was said through the noise.
- "Boys of Summer" at 21:09 UTC
- ID as the Beginning at 21:10 UTC
- Signal picked up to S7-S8 at 21:14 UTC. Thanks for the show!
- 21:22 UTC ID as The Beginning from Providence, RI

2114 EDM cover of In the Air Tonight.
2117 Dance remix of one of the blues versions of Black Betty. (the vocals didn't sound like they were from the Ram Jam version to me, it's an old blues standard that might date back to the early 1900s)

S9 and pretty clear on Vermont Mountaintop SDR

Might try my home setup soon.

2155 Picked up on my DX-160 with my weird wire antenna that right now is crisscrossing over my apt ceiling with what sounded like old on hold music
2157 ID

was fading in and out of the (presumed environmental) noise but was very clear at points
