12/8, 2242-2254+, 2353, 6940/U; Pop/rap/oldies/dance tunes. RoboW

Clever Name Radio” into Jerry Reed’s Amos Moses. SIO=353


12/13, 2335-2342*, 6940/U; Music by Heart followed by song I Don't

Care. Multiple station IDs by female voice. Fair signal

hampered by heavy static. (Sedlacek-NE)

12/13, 0023, 6940/U; tune-in, immediate ID by synthyl for Clever

Name Radio, heavy beat music S8 (Glenn Hauser, OK)

12/14, 2211-2215+, 6940/U; Rock tunes & RoboW ID. SIO=353


12/14, 2216, 6940/U; hard rock pirate, 2220 synthyl ID about 4

times, ``Welcome to Clever Name Radio`` (Glenn Hauser, OK)

12/14, 2226+, 6940/U; Song Merry Christmas to You. Weak signal

quickly lost in static. (Sedlacek-NE)

12/14-15, 2343-0023+, 6940/U; Selections of some rock music & sea-

sonal songs. Signal fair at first getting better throughout

broadcast despite heavy static. (Sedlacek-NE)


12/10, 0111-0142+, 6905/U; M singing in IT w/mostly love songs +

IT version of I Did It My Way. Good sig; up to 2+ min.

DA between tunes (Frodge-DXP)

12/10, 0115-0138+, 6905/U; lots of unfamiliar tunes, one familiar

one, My Way with LONG pauses between tunes & no IDs or any

announcements for that matter. Overmodulated ? clipping, so

not the most pleasant to listen to. Some of the lyrics were

pretty good talking about the moon & 'your eyes' etc. Clas-

sic stuff! 24342+ improving to 34443 by end--Zichi DXp


12/10, 0144-0152+, 6935/U; Punk rock tunes; vox @0151 but buried.

SIO=252+ peaks w/LSB pesky. ID per HFU posts, none hrd.



12/9, 1940-1950+, 6925.7/AM; Comedy bits & tunes; only recog-

nized Mickey, ID @1946, “Radio Comedy Club Int’l”. Poor &

best in LSB (Frodge-DXP)


12/9, 2035-2039+, 2105, 6899.6/AM; Good tinkle tune at tune-in

then plunged into the QRN. 2105, “B’casting from ? ...”,

then tinkle tune again. 6900 LSB pesky. ID per HFU post,

none hrd. (Frodge-DXP)


12/9, 0048, 6935/U; very poor, but instantly recognizable the

patrician tones of FDR, Pearl Harbor speech. Again @0114

check when he is mentioning island after island the Japa-

nese have attacked. HFU has a couple of reports during

this span, but many more during the original WFDR rebroad-

cast the night before = Dec 7 local: https://www.,39151.0.html

(Glenn Hauser, OK)


12/10, 0132-0234, 6950/U fair/poor some fading, variety of songs

with the word "new" in them. At 0232 SSTV/FAX of a B&W

pic of an early 1950's straight 8 Buick in a showroom as

seen on HF underground. Back in 1976 I had a 1952 Buick

with the Dynaflo transmission & 6 volt electrics. I had

to take the radio out and fix it. It had a vibrator power

supply & a pair of 6V6's in push pull. (Hassig-IL)

12/10, 0152-0206+, 6950/U; Rocakbilly, blues & soul tunes inclu-

ding; Betty Lou Has a New Pair of Shoes, The Blues Is

Knockin’ On My Door & Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag.

SIO=344-; got a bit fady after about 0200. (Frodge-DXP)

12/10, 0154-0236*, 6950/U Wolverine Radio with a programme I

never really caught a 'theme' for, but including a lot

of blues tunes, including Fats Domino You got Me Singing

the Blues & Aretha Franklin. Also Huey Lewis I Want a

New Drug & an unfamiliar tune You Gotta Bend Over to Tie

Those Shoes. GREAT modulation as usual for WR & 2 SSTV

images sent @0232. The first one was clear:

The signal was fading quickly before the 2nd one so it

wasn't received well at all. Here is how I received the

2nd one. Is that ALF? A mountain cliff? Is there text

in there too? Just TOO fuzzy! ;)

Mostly 3+5443+ but improving to 'good' at times. SPR-4

+500' randomwire + MultiMode for Mac to decode the SSTV.

--Zichi DXp

12/10, 0211, 6950/U; S9 music, jazz piano, a few more tunes until

0219 Wolverine Radio ID as expected (Glenn Hauser, OK)


12/8, 2052-2100+, 6925.64-.68/AM; Jazzy music. Drifty & strong

LSB pesky; best in LSB despite pesky (Frodge-DXP)

12/9, 1632, 6935/U; Very distorted music (Frodge-DXP)

12/13, 2343-2358+, 6940/U; Unid song with long bass guitar intro.

Possible ID @2355. Weak signal lost in static by 2358.
