Sounded like a heavy metal track.

The signal was blending into the noise floor here, so no song identification.

Got this in AM 0346 - 0349z, with an intermittent carrier before this period.  Unid tunage.  S9+2 here.

Thanks!

I might have been picking it up via ECSS instead of stricly USB.

Sounded like there might have been SSTV transmissions at a similar signal level a few minutes later. Possibly unrelated, though.

Big Boobs Radio? Re: UNID 6925USB 0344UTC 05252012

SDR recording catch. 0340 sign on with 99 Luftballoons boobs parody (so maybe Big Boobs Radio?), definitely an AM signal.  I wonder if this was the UNID I had the night before, same time, frequency, and signal strength.
