Yep, hear the pescadores on LSB. Too bad I don't speak Spanish.

Very weak here, could hear the techno/dance music, then sounded like one of the phaser-noise jammers of commercial shortwave stations here.

Sounds like repeat of what was on 6925 kHz 20 minutes ago. Strong signal here, S9, 45344

0200 Heard It In A Love Song, Marshall Tucker Band
0205 ID, Midnight Rider, Allman Brothers Band
0209 Ventura Highway, America
0212 ID, It Never Rains In Southern California, Albert Hammond
0216 TZ ID, Alfred Hitchcock theme, "Gather around me little buccaneers ..."
0217 Song I don't recognize
0219 ID, e-mail captainmorganshortwave -at- gmail.com,
continuation of last song, RTTY interference?
0221 Showdown, Odia Coates/ELO?
0225 Spirit In The Sky, Norman Greenbaum
0229 TZ ID, Alfred Hitchcock theme, etc.
0230 sign-off

Thanks for the complete show on another frequency, Captain!

Came on with TZ IS, "Gather around me little buccaneers," great signal here tonight S9.

0140 "Heard It In A Love Song," Marshall Tucker Band
0144 ID, "Midnight Rider," Allman Brothers
0148 "Ventura Highway," America
0150 ID, signal disappeared

Captain Morgan was so strong here that I never heard the interfering station. It's very weak in the background now and I can't make it out at all.

Thanks Captain!

Came on with music. Still difficult for me to copy, T-storm QRN really bad.

I'm still hearing mention of "Alex Vranes" and "Hilltopper" but this is not the canned loop that was playing before, there's more to it including some music.

0321 I don't know what is going on here. There may be two stations on top of one another. The "Alex Vranes" seems to be the same loop but I hear another station at the same time. Just heard "Tony T-O-N-Y Straka S-T-R-A-K-A" and some talk about $60? Maybe another station is attempting to jam the Alex station?

0339 A station pops up in strength once in a while. I heard "How you guys doing today?" and a female voice "This is Radio ...", sound like a foghorn, then either a horse neighing or a sheep bleating.

0346 Again female voice "This is Radio ...", more foghorns, horse, sheep and cow sounds.

I heard the "Oscar Lima ..." in there. Now only hear a repetitive electronic foghorn sound. I believe it is an attempt to jam the Alex station, which is gone now as far as I can tell.

0430 Frequency is clear except for the repetitive "foghorn" sound that has been going all along. I wonder what it is?

Here we go again ...

Well, it wasn't on for long tonight. QRT around 0250Z.

I typed too soon. Back on again 0258Z. But only for a couple minutes.

Hard to make out anything except the fact it's music. Thunderstorm QRN is S9 or greater here tonight.

German sounding song at 0227.
Heard "This is Radio Blah Blah Blah" at 0234.
Sound effects/cuckoo clocks at 0237

Doesn't seem like a whole lot going on tonight. I hear some USB chatter on 6930 and 6932.3 at 0200Z. Also something on 6941.7 USB right now that doesn't sound like pescadores.

I also now hear music on 6924 AM (yes, 6924, not a typo). Can't hear the audio too well.

I hear voices on 6950 USB right now (2335Z) but I suspect it's pescadores ...

Static crashes are once again overpowering here, S9 or better.

You know, I kind of had that thought.

Well, Alex, somebody really riled against you the other night on 6925. I have a recording of some of it. Someone is evidently pretty mad at you. See my other posting in the Shortwave Pirates section with the title "UNID on 6925 AM at 0340Z March 19".

I am active on all amateur radio bands through 24 GHz (with 47 GHz on the way). Hopefully my signals on 902 MHz and above don't cause any inadvertent interference to cell phones, GPS and Wi-Fi.

Fortunately my favorite operating place for microwave bands is on a hilltop in the middle of the vast farmland, 10 miles from the nearest small town. I cause no interference to my own cell phone but on 1296 MHz I wipe out my own GPS unit. But that's just a few feet away.

At 0410Z till now (0422Z) I hear pescadores on that frequency, USB. HOooooooo-la.

Could be pescadores. I'm also hearing SSB signals around 6941 and 6948 kHz (USB). They may be LSB signals for all I know; static is so loud here I can't even tune in to them.
