KPR 6925 USB w/ "Ode to Billie Joe"
« on: April 21, 2009, 1424 UTC »
Unusual for me to hear anything this time of day, so I must be in the path for KPR - caught it several times recently.
4/21/09, 6925 USB
1406 UTC: "Ode to Billie Joe", Bobby Gentry
1408z: KPR ID w/ "As we rock the Rockies" slogan
1409z: C&W song, don't recognize it.
1414z: Extended commentary from op, ending with KPR ID. Couldn't copy the message due to deep fade, might try the mp3 later.

SINPO 23322.  Fair signal, better than I usually get this time of day. Seems to be right on 6925.0 kHz, but I'd just turned on my receiver and it's a bit drifty and 0.1 kHz high until it warms up, so I was tuned to 6925.1.
