    Being a 9th grader at the time, those shenanigans were appealing to me!

    Everyone except BFS is a silent key. See if you can get it transferred to disk and I’ll buy a copy.

    The big difference between then and now is the language. High power was the thrill, not the F bomb.

    3898 started after 95 was basically killed by the FCC because of a few fines.

    It was, “dump it in, boy”!

    I don't have the ability to do that, and I wouldn't want to charge for it. Here are links to MP3 files of the recordings as they have been posted online:

    I've heard that K8RXW is not SK. He is operating as W8NB.
    Can you tell me more about the FCC fines?

    Those are direct links to the audio files. On Windows computers, "right click" then select "Save Link As" to download the files. Some browsers give the option to open or download. From there they can be burned to a CD if you still have a recordable disk and burner.

    Several stations were running, shall I say, more than legal limit. Like about 5 times more. Several of the cities in which these folks lived were targeted by the FCC. Fines were threatened, but I don’t know if any were levied. 95 kinda died after this.
