Hearing an OM speaking Spanish, S4 or so, checked several SDRs and he may be operating at just the right time between he's readable up and down the East Coast.  "Grand Norte" heard at 1152 UTC.  So far only one side of the QSO heard.  Mention of "Miami" a few seconds later.

Can only hear one side of a two station QSO, likely freebanders using USB instead of their usual LSB. 

UNID pirate station 6925 kHz 6.925 USB mode MHz May 27th 2018 Memorial Day weekend pirate fest!  Seriously though, this is the most stations going over a weekend I've heard in a while and it doesn't seem to be stopping

Hearing military-style music and an OM talking about "military might" "reserve troops", etc.  Lots of fading and noise making getting anything else difficult.  Checking remote receivers gives me either nothing or similar results. 

1119 UTC - "if they come from southwest, the Ukraine" "between the Caspian and Black Sea"
1125 UTC - "and while the Germans...."
1131 UTC - "125 miles" "by the Germans" - sounds like narration about the Eastern Front of WWII
1147 UTC - more dramatic martial music with narration on top, talking about Russia in WWII
1154 UTC - "they want solders, they want solders bad" ??
1157 UTC - "along the entire front" "by the spring of 1942" "German armies could be defeated"
1158 UTC - signal is wavering with more fading down into the noise
1203 UTC - either off or faded completely down into the noise

Strong signal at sign on with rap music, probably Seven Trees Radio.  Lots of QRM from 6900 USB and 6900 LSB as well as OTH radar

Today/tonight has been one of the busiest in pirate radio in a while!  Thanks for the show - wish the band wasn't so noisy (the signal has gotten somewhat stronger over the past 5-7 minutes, unfortunately the OTHR QRM is basically everywhere)

Off at 0232 UTC.  Strong freebanders (Spanish language) on 6900 LSB and 6905 LSB still chatting away

Tribute to vets, then "Taps" played several times, often with several seconds of dead air in between songs

Another carrier on 6924.90 to 6925 kHz just popped up, very busy band tonight!  Unfortunately there's a big wideband QRM in the 6922 to 6933 kHz range now

0134 UTC - checked back and the carrier is gone

Dramatic music, S4-S5

Sounds like audio from the film "Midway"

2346 UTC - OM "George...some of our boys were just plain scared"
2350 UTC - I think Skip is right, its likely audio from the film Patton

0004 UTC - OMs speaking German now
0006 UTC - suspenseful music
0016 UTC - SSTV x2
