Hearing Captain Morgan SW on 6951.5am, 10-1011, SINPO 33432
ID at 0103z - then into Seger's "Night Moves". Nice quality audio on this
rig. Some interference from a nearby het.

Not sure if the other het is another station or something going on with the Capt's. frequency stability.
General drift seems to be down frequency.

North American Shortwave Pirate / UNID 6924.7am
« on: September 24, 2011, 2043 UTC »
Been hearing a station since 2000z. After a tune-up, into mostly what sounded like various styles of dance music. Nice AM
signal with wide audio. There's been a couple of ID's, neither of which were very clear. The second ID came at 2034z and it
sounded like WRFM or WRF.... The letters of the ID were spoken at the same time as a beat from music making more difficult to
pull out. SINPO 35322. S7 on peaks with deep fades down to S1 and moderate noise. Some reference to "Family Radio" too.

2042z - Tom Jones - It's Not Unusual
2055z - An "Arrrrrgh" in pirate voice
2056z - Don Henly - Dirty Laundry
2101z - ID again. Maybe WRFP? "This is family radio" Seems like lots of echo on the ID's.
2104z - Laura Branigan - Self Control
2108z - Robyn - Don't Fookin' Tell Me What To Do
2117z - Big ass turd in the back seat of my '92 Accord. LOL!
2120z - It Began in Africa
2127z - Katy Perry - Firework
2129z - Another ID - bad timing with fades. Sonia Norwood talking about family radio.
2132z - off.

Thanks for the show. Listening to the recording, it sounds like WFMP or WFMT. The beats the coincide with the letters
of the callsign.

Big Ass Turd segment plus final ID

Please QSL.


General Radio Discussion / Engineering Radio Blog - Spy Numbers
« on: September 21, 2011, 1459 UTC »
Engineering Radio is one of my favorite blogs. It's well written and I've learned quite a bit from Paul's various entries.
This morning he has an interesting discussion on spy numbers. Even if you've been chasing these stations for years, Paul's experiences during his military stint in Guam make it an interesting read.


North American Shortwave Pirate / Capt. Morgan, 6924am
« on: September 20, 2011, 0321 UTC »
Hearing multiple Captain Morgan ID's and some Who tunes here in Chicago. Initially 25442, now faded down quite a bit.

North American Shortwave Pirate / 6950am, UNID
« on: September 18, 2011, 0101 UTC »
Hearing a nice S5-S7 signal with some deep fades here in Chicago. Came on right after the Wolverine show.
Sammy Hagar's "Heavy Metal" then in "Mama We're All Crazy Now" which I'm thinking is Quiet Riot.

ID was in there, but a little too distorted. Heard a second ID which seemed like it could be W...A...Zed...U

0118z - ID with email address for reports. Sounded like WAZU at mail dot com.
0123z - Metallica - nice
