Grundig YB 400PE - portable long wire strung West to East
Location Central Montana
July 6,  2012
Did not look at clock but estimating  3:30 - 4:00 UT     
6925 USB
Medium to strong signal with occasional long deep fades
excellent audio quality on peaks
tuned in to  Steve Miller - The Joker
then Roy Orbison  My notes have both Blue Bayou & Crying
followed by Santana Put your light's on

deep fade – Lost signal

signal back strong with Bob Dylan tune Like a Rolling Stone
then  very clear station ID Male voice -
BOR Blue Ocean Radio, blueoceanradio@gmail.com

then very poor signal to none- Off Air?

This was my very first Pirate broadcast logging!

At Approx. 5:30-7:30 UT again on 6925 USB
began to hear very weak audio signal with long deep fades to Nada.
International type music programing-
First recognized a Irish tune – Sharon Shannon?
Then partial copy of reggae type music.

At this point I though I was listening to  a different station other than BOR

Signal slowly improving with South or Central American rhythm
tune or tunes sung in Spanish?
Then -  very clear copy of the Banana Boat Song
followed by clear station ID - BOR Blue Ocean Radio, E-mail address then
something about Pacific coast of North America.

Then loud and clear theme from 2001 Space Odyssey.
Signal fading again with BOR station ID,  Pacific coast of North America,
then no signal – Off Air?  7:30 UT
