    Hi Everyone,

    I made the same stupid mistake I make twice a year. The first transmission of the RCI special on 9955khz should have been 22 to 23UTC. The schedule times we have on 9955khz just like the others have times change twice a year. This is so in the targets they air at the same time. I forgot about the time shift.

    Errrrr.
