Wow, it sounds great here on my big speakers. There was a big collage of pro-pirate principles.    18kHz wide signal. Little fading, getting better as sun sets.

Its the first time receiving it on my new SDR.

SINPO
55444

Thanks, XFM, at first I thought it was a legit station on account of its good waterfall signal.
