Voice of Captain Ron Shortwave 6955 USB

Post by Lex » Fri Sep 09, 2011 8:16 pm

9/10/11, 6955.1 USB, 0110z: Just tuned in a few minutes ago, Captain Ron ID and shout-out to Radio Ronin, playing some Offspring.
0115z: ID, mic level seems a little hot compared with recent shows.
0119z: ID, "Live, Friday night free radio"
0124z: ID, Captain Ron chatting with someone - can't tell if QSO over the air, phone call or someone else nearby on a different mic. Audio breaking up during live-on-mic segment between songs.
0127z: Rage Against the Machine "Guerilla Radio" - can even hear the whispered bit in the middle of this song.

SINPO=43433, some peaks to S9 on the indoor fugly loop, fades to S1, very low QRN, moderate local RFI.

During peaks this is one of the strongest pirate signals I've heard lately. Off-air recording available later.

0232z: "It's more than a hobby, it's a science and an art" comment with ID. On-mic bits seem a little clearer now, not breaking up as much.

SINPO=43434, a little stronger and steadier since around 0200z.

Three audio clips recording between 0110z-0230z, around 5-20 minutes each:

Those are temporary links, only good for a few days.

Have the voice of Captain Ron here with poor modulation. ID at 0119 and one prior to that.

0128 "This is the Voice of Capatain Ron with Friday night radio theraphy" than back into the music.

Very nice reception up here in Victoria, BC. I'm measuring around 6955.160 USB. Lot's of Captain Ron IDs. Presently S9 signal. There's also someone else on 6925.127 or so in AM, but too weak to ID (we're still in daylight here)....Walt
