Wolverine Radio 4015 USB was 6950 USB 0101 UTC 14 Nov 2021
« on: November 14, 2021, 0101 UTC »
0101 UTC "Testing 1, 2, 3", then "Wolverine Radio" followed by old time 20's music
With Shazam not working with Windows anymore, the posted playlist suffers... :(
Signal is solid above the noise, but barely moving the S-meter
0114 UTC Lost the signal here
0115 UTC OM talking?
0121 UTC Signal marginally better here now on 4015 USB
0134 UTC "Twisting The Night Away"-Sam Cooke
0137 UTC "Not Fade Away"-Rolling Stones
0149 UTC "So Far Away"-Carole King
0152 UTC "Drift Away"-Dobie Gray
0201 UTC "So Far Away"-Dire Straits

0103 UTC Old time song. S2-S5 signal, so it's hard for Shazam to ID the song.

0107 UTC Sounds like Billie Holiday singing. S2 to S3 signal. This is the weakest that I have heard Wolverine Radio in a while. I'm switching back and forth between my 40 meter double bazooka, and my random wire antenna with not much luck.

0121 UTC QSY to 4.015 MHz USB. Much better signal.

0124 UTC Billie Holiday "You Can't Take That Away From Me"

0128 UTC Gloria Hart "Let's Get Away From It All"


0130 UTC Wynonie Harris "Don't Take My Whiskey Away"

0134 UTC Sam Cooke "Twistin' The Night Away"

0139 UTC Four Tops "You Keep Running Away"

0141 UTC Cream "Dance the Night Away"

0145 UTC The Temptations "Just My Imagination"

0149 UTC Carole King "So Far Away"

0153 UTC Dobie Gray "Drift Away"

0157 UTC Roxy Music "Dance Away"

0200 UTC Dire Straits "So Far Away"

0206 UTC Jackson Browne "Miles Away"

0209 UTC Tom Waits "Walk Away"

0212 UTC Bonnie Raitt "One Belief Away"

Thanks for the show.

Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

SDR recording catch

0101 6950 USB Testing 1 2 3
0102 Wolverine ID into "Put Away a Little Ray of Sunshine" Lewis James
0105 "They Can't Take That Away From Me" Billie Holiday
0108 "Let's Get Away From It All" Gloria Hart & Raymond Scott
0110 "Don't Take My Whiskey Away" Wynonie Harris
0112 "I'll Fly Away" Hank Williams
0114 off for a minute
0115 DDJ on the mic talking about moving down to 4 MHz.

6950 was poor/fair, but 4015 was nonexistent. Partly that was me (my second SDR was set on the MLA-30 loop rather than the G5RV) but there's little doubt that 73m is still a poor band for this time of day. Ah well.
