BallSmacker Radio 6960.0 kHz AM 00:55 UTC 07 MAY 2022

00:55 UTC - Carrier is up; very nice S+15 signal;
00:58 UTC - Interval signal;
01:00 UTC - Broadcast begins;
02:43 UTC - SSTV: BallSmacker Radio
02:46 UTC - End of broadcast.

The new transmitter is sounding good. I think it also has more bandwidth than the previous transmitter. I am seeing audio peeking up to 10 kHz wide tonight.

Monitoring also available via the live stream: https://ballsmacker.net/

Best signal I've heard in a long time for Ballsmacker R. Music sounds very good considering the static in the background. Thanks for the good sounding show tonight.
