The stupid old top-40 songs and the religion are "understandable" in context. What got me: the advertisement for the Icom IC-7610 transceiver at 5:19. It has a "general coverage" receiver covering 30 kHz to 60 MHz. The transmitter section only does the standard amateur-radio bands in that range. It costs more than $3000 so I can't picture very many SWLs buying one merely to listen to WTWW or the like. Plus, isn't there still a "rule" or something that a dealer will sell a ham-band transmitter only to people who can prove they have a license?

They are supposed to ask for one, but the FleaBay people mostly don't, and the Chinese wholesalers pushing the Pofung/Baofeng handhelds have advertised them as "VHF/UHF scanners", conveiniently forgetting that these radios put out roughly 5 watts if you tap the button on the side (and they will transmit out of band.) WTWW constantly read ad copy from the now-defunct Universal Radio ("rffun.com") -- the station seemed to be very pro-ham radio, having an amateur radio show on Wednesdays. There is that (alleged) shortwave listener/ham radio divide, but you got the feeling that WTWW's DJs knew that a lot of their audience held callsigns.

The stupid old top-40 songs and the religion are "understandable" in context.

I grew up with guys like "Shotgun Tom" Kelly and Bill Ballance* on AM radio, so the oldies radio patter mixed with ".....In the Book of Thessalonians...." was endlessly jarring to me.

Ballance is a name I can't forget. He was one of the world's original "shock jocks". He was making rude jokes, taking phone calls and openly insulting people on the air, back in the 1960s. He was ANNOYING. A sure-fire way to build a "long career" in radio. Sarcasm intended.

Bill on the air, from 1961:

If you hated Bill Ballance for being annoying, "Shotgun Tom" Kelly was a bunch of mouth-made sound effects before hitting the button on the cart machine to play "I'm a Believer" by The Monkees or a Buddy Holly song or whatever the caller requested. Bob Eubanks probably did similar radio patter like Ballance when he was a disk jockey -- it was a thing with AM DJs in the 1960s....never forget "The Real Don Steele" who was famous enough to appear in Death Race 2000 and as a V.O. in Gremlins. It was either end up a side character in a film or be a game show host, that was where old DJs went after radio.

Anybody know what this is? Sounds like some sort of 40 meter SSB net. (Around six minutes long.)

More crap:

https://archive.org/details/na-5-b-part ... 1700.0k-hz

NA5B Part 15 XMTR. Mostly Jazz-ish. 01-17-2023 1700.0kHz

Why NA5B runs a 100 mW transmitter that runs off-market music is a mystery I hope we never get an answer to.

Recorded off the NA5B WebSDR, natch.

https://archive.org/details/wrmi-ex-wtw ... 4980.0k-hz

3:53 - 4:09 Ted Randall's intro to Haddaway's "What is Love"

4:10 - 8:05 "What is Love". Interference at 5:59 - 6:06, sounds like shortwave fax or data transmission.

8:06 - 8:52 Atlas Weather robot (left no gap between last song and itself.)

8:52 - 8:59 "Another instant request."

8:59 - 15:32 "Papa was a Rollin' Stone" - The Temptations

28:51 - 30:05 Ted Randall ad for R & L Electronics, a ham radio store.

30:05 - 30:30 WRMI ID plus Randall talking up WRMI Legends, then segueing into a Herb Alpert song.

30:30 - 32:50 I cannot find that Herb Alpert song, but it's one of his brisk ones.

32:50 - 33:01 Another WRMI Legends show ID, Randall naming Sonny & Cher.

33:01 - 35:52 "I've got You, Babe" - Sonny & Cher (tail end gets cut off.)

39:57 - 40:03 Another WRMI Legends how to do "instant requests" bumper and then another song.

40:03 - 45:19 One of those '80s hard rock bands. Isn't Dokken or Def Leppard, maybe Whitesnake?

45:20 - 45:57 WRMI does a station ID on top of a song about "swamp critters" and "Vietnam". Then another WRMI Legends jingle.

46:57 - 48:51 "Baby Baby, Fallin' in Love" (1975) - Hamilton Joe Frank & Reynolds. Radio band is slightly choppy.

48:51 - 48:59 Another WRMI Legends bumper.

59:30 - 63:46 Randall introduces "Barracuda" by Heart and the song plays through.

63:46 - 64: 35 Robot weatherlady from Atlas Weather.

***
93:56 - 96:29 Mamas and the Papas - "California Dreamin'". 96:43 weird AM interference in Spanish. 96:36 even more fax-like interference over The Who's "Simple Jack".

***

112:25 - 117:10 Ted Randal introduces Michael Jackson - "Man in the Mirror". 116:04 tone then more fax-like interference to 116:48. Bizarre.

***

Last song on recording, Martha and the Vandellas - "Nowhere to Run" (1965).

Yet more crud:

https://archive.org/details/warfa-main- ... 3908.0k-hz

Flashback -- WARFA Main, Live Billy. Th. Fragment. 09-19-2019 3908.0kHz

A fragment of the Thursday check-in net in 2019. You get to hear William F. Crowell (now ex-W6WBJ) doing his jamming live before the jamming collage is played (an earlier, nastier one with more 3840 kHz snippets.) I don't know why the recording stopped, but this is the fragment we have.

https://archive.org/details/wbcq-the-wa ... 23-01-22-t

WBCQ ' The Wavy Gravy Show', ' The Hour Of Slack', R. G. Stair At End. Sat. 01-21-2023 6160.0kHz

What WBCQ sounded like on Saturday on 6160 kHz. The NA5B WebSDR picks up the station in a middling way.

****

https://archive.org/details/warfa-main- ... 3908.0k-hz

WARFA Main, Jammed With David Crosby Songs. Th. 01-19-2023 3908.0kHz

The night that David Crosby died the Western Amateur Radio Friendship Assoc. check-in net was jammed with his music, then the standard ex-W6WBJ fare. Both WARFA frequencies were jammed. Utter waste of radio bandwidth and electricity, because the net did not break up. Our recorder stopped, and we restarted.

Recorded off the KFS WebSDR.

More stuff added, just check the page:

https://archive.org/details/3840-histor ... 3840.0k-hz

3840 History -- Weird Post-WARFA Nonsense with George Carlin. 7-29-2018 3840.0kHz

It starts off with the normal gibberish and then about 2 minutes in somebody starts playing George Carlin routines. They did this a lot on 3840. One of the bits is from Occupation: Foole (1973).

https://archive.org/details/dutch-langu ... 1485.2k-hz

Dutch Language AM Station Leaking Into UK. 02-10-2023 1485.2kHz

This one is a real puzzle - what station is this? There is a C-QUAM (AM stereo) Dutch station on this frequency called "Dreamtime AM" but it's a low power station and this one is booming into the Grimsby UK SDR around 200 miles away. The sound of the audio sounds like other C-QUAM stations I've heard on a normal AM radio. Any answers are a help.

https://archive.org/details/hhh-net-fro ... .-to-th.-2

HHH Net From After 11pm. Net Slipped From 7190kHz To 7194kHz Back To 7190kHz. W. To Th. 02-09-2023 7190.0kHz

The HHH check-in net seems to need the NetLogger app so you know where it is, because they move it within the time the net is running to avoid band noise or pescadores or jammers, I can never tell. I started recording after 11pm, the net ended at 1:40am PST.

No idea. Apparently 1485 used to be a "clear channel" with full power allowances, but today is supposed to be limited to stations of 1 watt or less. Finding out more means digging thru opaque Dutch government websites. (Isn't it "cute" how C-QUAM makes speech less intelligible if you're not using a decoder? And the corporations (coughmotorolacough), who pushed the crap originally, also "guaranteed" it would be "compatible" with normal AM receivers.)

The NA5B WebSDR packed up about ten minutes into the next show, so I have no idea what it is, nor was it listed in the Radio Angela schedule. Sorry.

More crap:

Either The End Of A SSB Net Or Just A QSO. Easter Sun. 2023-04-10 T 03-13-20 Z 3912.9kHz

https://archive.org/details/either-the- ... 3912.9k-hz

Found at random because WARFA did not do a net on Easter. I have no idea what this is because there is no lower sideband (LSB) net on 3913 kHz listed anywhere. What is this?


Recorded off the KFS WebSDR Half Moon Bay, CA. (Near San Francisco.)




Voice Of The Report Of The Week International SW. Easter Sunday. 2023-04-10 T 05-01-32 Z 4840.0kHz

https://archive.org/details/voice-of-th ... 4840.0k-hz


Off air recording of John "Reviewbrah" Juransek's shortwave radio program, run on WWCR's buzziest transmitter. Missing the first two or three minutes.


Recorded off the NA5B WebSDR, Washington, D.C.



All this WARFA crap, uploaded as proof the jamming has not stopped:

https://archive.org/details/warfa-main- ... 3908.0k-hz (49 mins total)

https://archive.org/details/warfa-relay ... 3890.0k-hz (37 mins total)

https://archive.org/details/warfa-main. ... 3908.0k-hz (53 mins long)

https://archive.org/details/warfa-relay ... 3890.0k-hz (13 mins long)

Take them, burn them on to CDs, mail them to the FCC.


WWCR -- InfoWars Last 83 Mins., R. G. Stair First 30 Mins. M. 04-04-2023 4840.0kHz

https://archive.org/details/wwcr-info-w ... 4840.0k-hz

Host of InfoWars last portion was Gerald Celente (a Hal Turner soundalike), so think of this as a longer version of the recording I submitted in September of 2022. I thought the transmitter would shut off at midnight Central, but it continued on, giving us yet more Overcomers' Ministry. The nasty 60-cycle hum has not gone away, much like the tapes of Ralph Gordon Stair (d. 2021).
