Unid 6875 USB 7 AUG 2015 0205 UTC
TCS Shortwave Relay Network, "Bubblegum Express" show

Just barely audible, but improving.  Some version of Let the Sunshine In, Live for Today, San Francisco.  Groovy.
0214z: Turn on, tune in, drop out, TCS Shortwave Network ID.
0215z: Itchy Kitschy Poo Park, Small Faces.  Beautiful.
0217z: Along Comes Mary.  Looks like she found some hair gel.
0220z: 8 Miles Hiiiggghhh, maaannn.
0225z: Journey to the Center of Ted Nugnut's Mind
0227z: "You are listening to the Crystal Ship ... drop out", occasionally audible. Flute intro to Fifth Dimension, Age of Aquarius, then Jefferson Airplane White Rabbit.  No copy on next song.
0233z: Incense, Hippie Scents.
0236z: She's got it.  Venus.  At least I hope it's Venus and not something that rhymes with Venus.
0250z: Green Tambourine, Hair (sounds like Cowsills version)
0254z: What's your name?  Who's your [s]pimp[/s] daddy?  Is he rich like me?
0257z: I can't see me lovin' nobody but you, until the next pretty little hippie comes along, for all my life.
0300z: Fur Ur Luv.
0304z: Off or sudden fade, after mention of JTA?
0305z: Nope, back, though still rough copy here.  Juliana Montana ID, Donner Pass Diner ad.
0310z: Beatlejuice, All U Needs Is Luv
0314z: Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me got a gravy kinda glove.
0315z: 5th Dim/Aquarius flute again, Van Morrison's frown-eyed gal.
0327z: TCS ID after PPM couldn't find any flowers.
0330z: Love.  Get in my belly.
0336z: Archies.  Aww, sugar.  Diabeetus.
0339z: Monkeys.  I'm a believer.  I couldn't leave her.  Even if I found anything else that rhymes with believer.
0345z: My baby loves love.  She's got what it takes and she knows how to use it.  Because she's a professional.
0349z: TCS ID.  Truth.  Justice.  Freedom of the hairwaves.  Damn hippies.
0353z: I woke up in love this morning.  Went to bed with you on my mind.  That explains the wet spot.
0358z: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or more.  The number of shills at The Bloody Red Trumpkin's hair worship sessions.
0400z: TCS bubblegum special ID
0409z: The morning sun is shining like rub redder balls.
0412z: My love rose like Rosemary's nose.  Because she's a liar.
0422z: Riding the TCS shortwave bubblegum express.  Archies heart went "Bang-Shang-A-Lang".
0428z: This morning, he woke up, and right in the middle of a wet dream, he committed the classic adolescent mistake of confusing hormones with love.
0430z: Quote from The Caine Mutiny.  The right way, the wrong way, and the cool way.  Bogie's way.
0440z: Julie, Julie, Julie would you mug me?
0441z: TCS ID
0443z: Simple Simon sez put your hands on your head.  Drop to the ground.  Assume the position.  Do it double time.  Choke hold or shot in the head.
0445z: Monkees.  Take the last train to the Clarksville FEMA camp.  One way.
0453z: Off after TCS IDs, Quint quote, Ramones.

Fun show, and this USB relay was a bit easier for me to copy, at least in summertime.

So far, SINPO=24332, just audible enough to copy familiar songs. Conditions not bad though. Takes about an overall signal of 3 for song recognition apps to work, while I can copy familiar tunes at a 2 level.
After 0245z, SINPO=23332, due to steady beeping QRM.  I hear that signal a lot near 6875.
After 0400z, SINPO=33423, slightly stronger, less QRN, clearer peaks, deeper fades to inaudible.

Off-air recording from final hour and 15 minutes of broadcast.
The Unpleasant Frequencies Crew:
Al - Palstar R30C w/ RF Systems EMF
Snoopy - Sony ICF-2010
Roger - Magnavox D2935
(Archive of off-air recordings.)

Well that's a bummer, on USB, missed it. Have to catch it another time I hope. Looks like it was a awesome show per Lex. Fell asleep from exhaustion-almost 70 hrs of work this week. I will catch it next time JP! :mrgreen:
