Pink Floyd's Speak To Me/Breathe into On The Run.  

Would be awesome if Pee Wee is planning on playing Dark Side of the Moon all the way through :D

0125-0127, CW over "Time", followed by SSTV then signal disappeared.

2732
The "UNID" starting at 0036 UTC is Moonlight Radio.  See thread:

http://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,26539.0.html

2733
"Radio Free Mars" ID heard at 0051, into more Elton John

2734
Hearing electronic music/techno on 6930 kHz USB.  S7 signal level, a bit of noise but readable.  Came on about 10 minutes after Amphetamine Radio signed off the same frequency 6930 kHz USB.  

2735
A solid S9 signal, peaking to S9+10db or so.  Looks to be around 6924.80 kHz or maybe a tiny bit higher - 6924.85 kHz.  Either way it is causing serious QRM to Liquid Radio on 6925.2 kHz AM.  Nice wide audio signal on the K2SDR WebSDR waterfall display here at 0024 UTC 02/22/2016.

Carrier dropped off completely for about 1.5-2 seconds around 0033 UTC and then came right back.  Now hearing "Let The Sun Shine" at 0035 UTC.  Strong signal, but noisy conditions and QRM from Liquid Radio on 6925.2 kHz -ish (probably closer to 6925.3 kHz).  Liquid Radio's carrier is still definitely there.  Update:  At 0037 UTC, 6924.8 kHz AM's audio disappeared (carrier is still there) but now I'm just hearing Liquid Radio's unmistakable trance 4/4 thumping beat!  

0045 UTC - Elton John - Rocket Man (with some QRM)

2736
There appears to be a second station on 6924.8 as well.  

Update:  At 0037 UTC, 6924.8 kHz AM's audio disappeared (carrier is still there) but now I'm just hearing Liquid Radio's unmistakable trance 4/4 thumping beat!   At least, I'm pretty sure the "electronica" music I'm hearing is Liquid, it is very difficult to tell for sure due to there being several stations on/near 6925 kHz at once. 

2737
Radio Free Whatever 6935 kHz USB - BIG signal with LOUD audio on the USB.  Solid 4 kHz of audio on the waterfall.  Had to widen the SSB bandwidth.  Really nice audio Comrade!  Easy S9 signal on the WebSDR and on the local RX setup.  Sounds awesome for sideband.  Good work DJ DW!

Tuned back in at 1855 UTC.  Signal quality has degraded somewhat.  Still an S7 signal peaking to S8-S9.  The band has gotten more noisy over the past few hours however.  Difficult to hear what's going on through the noise.  I hear what sounds like a YL talking and possibly an OM but I can't tell what is being said or what's happening.  Dropped bandwidth down to 6 kHz (from 8 kHz).  1859 UTC, sounds like a OM singing a tune, then screaming at somebody (???)  Doesn't sound like a YL crying or screaming like other posters have noted.  

1900 UTC - dead air  
1901 UTC - sound fx, sounds sort of like birds chirping, then more "jungle" sound fx.  OM speaking unknown language
1902 UTC - OM speaking, not sure if he's just slurring his words or audio is distorted but it is difficult to understand what he's saying
1904 UTC - More distorted talking, VFO swishing carrier QRM "no! it's too late!" two OMs talking to each other now (possibly)

Strong carrier at 6950 kHz AM found while tuning up from VOG on 6925 kHz.  Doesn't seem to be any modulation on the signal (or if there is any, I can't hear it...) but there's been a carrier signal there for at least the past 8 minutes or so.

1452 - Hearing music on this frequency now.  Sounds like a sultry YL signing.  Signal is a bit noisier now
1632 - Still there!  S7 signal, S9 on peaks.  Nice modulation and carrier seems to be right on 6950.0 kHz.  Sounding great, whoever you are :D

2742
Nice, loud signal S9 level on the K2SDR.  Some minor fading and local (to the SDR anyway) QRN but sounding great

Awesome.  The band has been open to some degree or another every afternoon for the past few days.  Most of the openings seem to be from Latin America but I do hear a European station in there from time to time.

26645 AM, 26725 AM, 26905 AM, 26945 AM and 27515 AM are booming in nicely this morning with female taxi dispatchers reading lots of numbers in Spanish.  The other usual frequencies that are heard during a band opening are waking up as well.  26725 AM is active with a YL reading numbers to OM taxi drivers.  This frequency is usually difficult to receive due to heavy QRM from high power signals on 26705 AM and 26715 AM.
