1614 Signal shot up to SIO 555 momentarily, then back to 333. Lots of QSB today.  And back to 555.

« on: May 16, 2019, 1327 UTC »
SDR recording catch

0520 Very weak, but hearing someone speaking, and perhaps some music? It could have been on earlier than this, but very difficult to tell.
0528 Slightly stronger, an OM speaking.
0535 Music
0542 OM speaking
0551 OM speaking over music "... getting harassed by..."
0552 "... the kind of person with a pickup truck up on blocks in their front yard for five years... "
0555 Music, Shazam claims Gong "Givin My Love To You", also claims "Lee Harvey Was A Friend of Mine", not sure either is correct.
0557 Telephone running, then a phone call. Sonny And Cher "The Beat Goes On" for a few seconds.
0615 ID? Sounded like <something> Radio
062 Off or gone? I think so. Anyone want to claim this station?

I am in the process of getting my Crossed Parallel Loop back up and running again. So I decided to check out 1620 for my semi local pirate. Sure enough I was hearing music, fairly weak at first, but slowly getting better.

1729 Sinatra tune.
1732 ID! and then into "Mac The Knife"
1802 Wings "Just Another Day"
