Undercover Radio 1720 AM 0109 UTC 31 Jan 2022
« on: January 31, 2022, 0118 UTC »
0109 UTC First noted carrier, then traces of music deep in the noise
0115 UTC Faded up a bit....unid rock tune
0119 UTC Another fade up with possible different rock tune. Signal is mostly at threshold amidst local noise
0123 UTC Familiar song but I don't remember the name....(Thanks for the name refmo!)
0127 UTC Possible OM said something? Into what might be a 90's grunge tune....too much noise here  :(
Thanks for the ID at 0127 refmo!
0141 UTC OFF.....I detect no carrier

The noise is overwhelming the signal.....but it is good to know you're on again Dr. Benway!

Dr. Benway heard with a crystal clear signal. Announcement of 20th anniversary. Very good audio. Dr. Benway was gone soon after everyone heard him.
