Shortwave Pirate / UNID 5030>6960 kHz AM 1910 UTC 16 March 2019
« on: March 16, 2019, 1913 UTC »
Strong station on the west coast playing continuous music with no ID heard. No commercial broadcasters scheduled on that frequency at this time. Possible pirate? QSY to 6960 kHz at 2000 UTC.

I've been listening to this station on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada for the past half hour with fair to good signals using a Drake R8B receiver and a G5RV antenna. It's starting to fade now. Currently talking but they have been playing some pretty nice music.

Could be possible to hear these signals for those on the west coast as skip is still pretty long to the west at that time and at this time of year. Depends on how much power they will run and propagation, of course. I know I will be listening from my west coast qth.
