Greek pirate?  Fading up slightly above my quiet noise floor with electronic dance music on peaks.  Very weak into West Michigan and parallel to what I'm hearing much stronger on a Greek SDR right now.

S9 into West Michigan with Gary Numan.  Literally the last time I heard WDOG was 34 years ago!

Great to hear you on the air again, and with the Numan tracks!  Great stuff and great memories!

A big thanks to WDOG for QSL'ing my 1987 off-air recording!  I hope to hear you again in the near future!

ZIZ has been off for at least 10 years.  They were occasionally heard here in Michigan but were never strong for me.

Late log.  Test transmission heard by a teenage kilokat7 in 1987 by WDOG with a series of awesome Gary Numan songs that were brand new to me at the time and rocked my world!

PLS QSL if the current WDOG is the old WDOG heard in my 1987 recording: WDOG 7415 kHz October 10th, 1987 0014 UTC

Recorded off my GE 7-2990A "World Monitor" with a wire strung through a tree from West Michigan.  Good memories.

Thanks for the heads-up.  Did you hear anything good?  KVJY heard here (weak) under heavy slop from my local on 850.  Not much else noted last night.

Weak over the static this morning with Butthole Surfer's song "Pepper" @ 1055 UTC.  I suspect this is the same weak music station that I hear nearly every morning around sunrise off my West DKAZ loop that hangs out barely above my noise floor.  Seems a little stronger this morning, if it's the same station.

1106 UTC: OM talk over music mentioning "Dark Life Radio Show" and possible email address for contact.
1111 UTC: Metallica "Sad But True"
1117 UTC: Duran Duran "Ordinary World"
1119 UTC: OM ID "This is Dark Life Radio" and other talk
1121 UTC: Beck "Loser"
1125 UTC: Cake "Leather Sofa"
1130 UTC: Blind Melon "No Rain"
1136 UTC: Instrumental with guitar solo, beginning to loose out to my local noise now..
1145 UTC: Off and carrier gone.

Thanks for the good tunes this morning, whoever you were!  QSL appreciated

Fishing Drift Net Beacons / 2049 kHz "RQ0" 1124 UTC 21 March 2021
« on: March 22, 2021, 0150 UTC »
Clear copy, "RQ0" ID followed by a long dash repeated three times and then off for three minutes and the cycle starts over.  Heard three cycles and then gone for good just after local sunrise.

I'm not real sure on this one, but I guess it's a driftnet beacon?  Seems like an unusual ID as most appear to be alphanumeric.  Anyway this oddity surfaced for a just a minute or so yesterday morning on my West DKAZ loop that has a good reach to the west coast and beyond, so I can safely rule out the Atlantic ocean or points East of Michigan.  I'm real curious if anyone has heard this one before or would care to guess where it originated from.  I haven't heard a 1710-1800 kHz driftnet beacon in nearly a decade so this was an unusual surprise:

Standby music with a good signal here, 10 to 20 over S9.  Looking forward to the show RH!

1204 UTC had someone barely poking up above the noise floor with what sounded like classical music this morning.  Very very faint, and surprisingly caught on my very directional west antenna which usually has nothing on 1710.  If the station op is reading this then please contact me for a recording to confirm!  Frequency measured 1700.001

Very weak, mostly a carrier but occasional audio peaks with rap music heard at 0038 UTC.

Andy, yes, you're hearing the same station that I am hearing right now.  About an hour or so into this one now and still no ID or announcements.  Sounds like a broadcast quality signal here with only occasional fading.  The South Bend station is long gone.  There really aren't any good legitimate choices here as to who this could be.  I suspect it's the same station that Chris and I have heard in recent weeks during early afternoons that play non-stop Christmas music on 1620.

Very strong Christmas music here right now at 0318z and seems much too strong for the usual suspects, no announcements heard so far.  I'm also hearing WDHP from the US Virgin Islands way underneath.
