Absolutely amazing reception in Northern Virginia. SINPO 5555.
DX Guides (UK, dxguides.info) gives this as Talata-Volondry, Madagascar, while all other frequency listings gives it as Al Seela, Oman. I'm going with Madagascar.

UnID 6925 LSB 02:00 UTC 31 OCT 2021. SINPO 35343 on my DX-398. SINPO 55555 on the NA5B SDR.

Animated conversation going on among two to three individuals with much chuckling and exclaiming. Can't identify the language. Sounds Romance, but I don't think it's French, Spanish, Portuguese or Romanian. Maybe heavy slang. A mystery. 

Caught a classic rock program over WRMI. 5850 kHz, 04:50 UTC, 25 October 2021, SINPO 45444.

The playlist was like that of a pirate station: In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Sunrise Superman and House of the Rising Sun. Took me back! The WRMI schedule shows The Overcomer Ministry at this time, which did start after the station ID at 05:00 UTC.

This frequency is WRMI until sign-off at 04:00 UTC. Nothing in the WRMI schedule about a program on 9955 kHz past 04:00 UTC. I listened again on 10 June, but nothing on this frequency after 04:00.

« on: May 27, 2021, 0330 UTC »
WA3UKC 7200 LSB 02:32 UTC 27 May 2021.

02:32 Calling CQ With YL Voice.
02:35 QSO with KB3DOR, now in male voice. It turned out he had been using the recorded voice of "Amanda" to send his CQ calls.

Reminded me of an article in Popular Electronics in the 1960s about a ham who had a neighbor YL doing his CQs for him in the hope of attracting DX stations. This was the first time I'd actually heard this done in practice!

What is XECFR?

Good and steady signal in Northern Virginia from 05:40 to 05:55 but no discernible ID. Heavy interference from 05:55 wiped out MW except for local stations.
