Undercover Radio 1720 AM 0046 UTC 6 Feb 2022
« on: February 06, 2022, 0047 UTC »
As soon as the 1725 AM Unid went missing, I tuned to 1720 AM and found this at 0046 UTC. Signal much stronger than the UNID on 1725 AM (Possibly the 1725 station QSY'd to 1720?)
0048 UTC "Hold Your Head Up"-Argent (Some S5 peaks here with superb sounding AM audio!)
0055 UTC Deep fade, but carrier still there
0057 UTC Faded back in to hear what sounds like the voice of Dr Benway  8) Mostly threshold audio now
0100 UTC Signal faded in to just above the noise floor....unid rock song OM singer
0107 UTC "Iron Man"-Black Sabbath
0110 UTC "Hells Bells"-AC/DC
0118 UTC "Sweet Leaf"-Black Sabbath
0123 UTC "Ace of Spades"-Motorhead
0126 UTC Accented or synth voice with ID and email address
0154 UTC Dr Benway with ID and email, then off.
Time to kick back and just listen....thanks for the entertainment Dr. Benway!

S9 @ 0055 with "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" BTO
0057 - Dr. Benway with ID and email address [sounding excellent]
0132 - still mostly S9 with "The Last In Line" Dio, signal seems to have lost most of the low mids. Bass and upper-mids still good
0137 - "Child In Time" Deep Purple, low-mids sounding better

Hearing here since 0126, with Crazy Train and heavy metal selections. Fair signal, no interference, median noise level, and some big fade outs/ins, and some fuzzy audio). Still, the signal is strenghining,

0155   Had this on a 1953 Philco  53-562  " special servjces" chassis that I  torture by leaving it on for weeks sometimes.   It doesn't have its original case so I have only a rough idea of the frequencies.  For some time there was heavy rock , Ozzy and whatnot, down at the lower end of the " special band"  I couldn't figure out and thought maybe WRCR breaking bad.
Heard the UCR sign off -  Wow.     Original 5x9in loop antenna has a 10 ft booster wire out the window.
Thanks for the show/ surprise
