Random Radio, 6925am, 10-24-12, 0210z
« on: October 24, 2012, 0223 UTC »
Came on around 0210z with some information about logging or QSL'ing. Just above the noise level (S6/S4).
Robert Random speaking. Into "Spirit in the Sky" at 0218z. Sounded like a comedy bit for Reverend Al Radio as part of the show. Audio was kind of tough to pull out against the noise.

Random Radio ID at 0223z.
off at 0225z

SDR catch, 0208z, USB here, it did not seem to be AM? Very weak at first, but the signal came up in a few minutes to about S6.
