> > Hi Gary, Thanks for the RCI sign-on routine recording! I had to laugh when I heard the tail end of the audio, when the announcer's voice kicks in. Radio Cook Islands is still sounding over-modulated and bass-heavy, just like they were *25* years ago when I visited! Audio from their tapes or carts were fine, but announcer's voices tended to sound really distorted.
Anyone interested in hearing a vintage Radio Cook Islands sign-on should check out my recording #1 from this article on the SWLing Post: https://swling.com/blog/2015/07/radio-cook-islands-guys-1993-visit-and-recordings/ 73, Guy Atkins Puyallup, WA > ---------- Forwarded message ---------- > From: Gary DeBock <d1028g...@comcast.net> > To: "America, Mailing" <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Cc: > Bcc: > Date: Thu, 12 Apr 2018 18:24:12 -0700 (PDT) > Subject: [IRCA] 630-Cook Islands Sign On Routine (1555 UTC) > 630-Radio Cook Islands in Rarotonga is one of the most exotic Pacific > island stations on the MW band, with a reputation of being a real > underperformer.
