1630Z 55555 S9+20  Oldies music station is back.
1634Z 55555 S9+20 "The Real Oldies Channel"

Been thinking and doubt that its a pirate, but may be a broadcaster that's testing. Even though no FCC records, they may be behind in posting them.

I imagine you could run it under vmware or parallels, I used to do that with the SpectraVue software for the RF Space SDRs.

I have Perseus in Parallels and it has problems.

- Playing back a pre-recorded wave file is fine.
- It doesn't work with the radio. Just does nothing.
- When tying to connect over the network, it seems to connect in the server messages box, but never does anything more than that. 

Have heard from others of similar results. Haven't had a chance to dig into it much yet.

Man, I missed Shatner's interpretation of Rocket Man. Been waiting forever for a pirate to play it, and here I am asleep at the switch.  :'(

"May"? Certainly forward-looking!

Oops. Fixed that.

I was listening to it for a while and it was surprisingly strong.

They're coming in at a solid S7 (35433) here at 0506Z.

This appears to be a pirate relay (or perhaps an undocumented legit test?) of WINR's Real Oldies Channel:

1941Z 55555 S9+35 Back on the air with Van. Hadn't been on the freq for about 15 mins, so do not know when it came back.

1951Z 55555 S9+35 Deep Purple "Woman From Tokyo" Only was into about 1 second of it when the audio dropped. Still had full carrier. Thirty to forty seconds later, next song started.  
195158Z 55555 S9+35 Thelma Houston "Don't Leave Me This Way"
1953Z Playlist since 1941Z is not the same as the playlist listed in iHeartRadio for WINR.
1957Z 55555 S9+35 Tavares "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel"
2002Z 55555 S9+35 The Shirelles "Mama Said." Sudden jump into this song near the end.
2002Z 55555 S9+35 Marty Thompson on a million dollar weekend.
2002Z 55555 S9+35 Fontella Bass "Rescue Me"
2005Z 55555 S9+35 Steam "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye"
2007Z Now the playlist is the same at iHeartRadio, specifically from The Shirelles (perhaps the jump was to use that source?).
2008Z 55555 S9+35 The real oldies live here on The Real Oldies Channel"
