Tuned in while "Hand Jive" was in progress, sounds like George Thorogood.  S6 in NY but the modulation is very weak unfortunately.  Song by Van Morrison at 2231 UTC.  Signal starting to fade out at 2236 UTC.

2051 UTC "So Long" Fischer-Z.  2052 UTC "Rock Me Baby" Johnny Nash.  S4 in NY with fading and atmospheric noise.  2057 "Sylvia's Mother" - Dr. Hook. 2105 "Big Bamboo" - The Merrymen.

I have a carrier on 6925.25 kHz.  S5 at 1513 UTC in NY.  Sending SSTV at 1516 UTC.  Carrier has drifted down a bit.  One image looked like a Buddha statue, another was a planet.  Carrier has drifted down to 6925.1 at 1523.  Music now at 1524, right after an image of a mountain at sunrise.  B&W image of microphone, bones and lightning bolts at 1540 UTC.  Seems to have gone off now.

Tuned in during a surf forecast, followed by some instrumental surf music. Weak here in NY, about S5.

Playing Black Sabbath "Electric Funeral" at 2124 UTC tune in.  S7 in NY.

Although this is a new licensed station, I am posting it here for now as it is more in the spirit of free radio than an international broadcaster.  Tuned in at 2100 to hear their test transmission announcement, talk by an English accented DJ, followed by music, and frequent test transmission announcements.  Coming in about an S7 in the clear in NY on my 48 meter half-wave dipole.

Progressive music program has been on since I tuned in; "The Baptism" by Exploring Birdsong at 2128 UTC.  Carrier went off at 2158 UTC.

Right after 6949.3 went off, I think this came on.  Played "Kitty", then went off.  Nice strong signal and audio in NY.

Tuned around a bit after listening to 6880 for almost 3 hours, found this at 1953 UTC playing some Roy Orbison ("Fastest Guitar Alive"), and now as I'm typing this, "Ooby Dooby".  S7 in NY, nice clear audio.

Not sure if this is the new station testing from Germany, or a pirate.  Heard a couple of songs by Blondie when I first tuned in.  This was followed by two instrumental surf guitar songs.  S6 in NY, relatively low noise on 49 meter band here in NY.  ID at 2250 UTC.

Tuned in to hear a spacey tune, then some announcements from DJ Dickweed.  He mentioned playing songs from the Foo Fighters and a new tune from Beck.  S8 in NY.

Tuned in, and heard the unmistakable voice of the "Mouth of the South", Mr. Andy Walker at 2337.  Lots of atmospheric noise at the moment, so can't copy what is being said, other than AW sounds excited about something. S5 in NY.
