Black Arrow here with S7 peaks and superb audio at 1345 UTC.  Music booming in, and great copy on announcements between fades. Close down after Small Faces tune at 1358 UTC. Very happy to finally get a solid logging! Thanks Mr BA!!! :)

The real world mailman brought me the finest QSL I've ever received in my decades of on and off shortwave listening. I opened up the Priority Mail carton and inside was Captain Morgan QSL # 124. A real operational wall clock with full data! Thank you very much Captain Morgan ;D  ;D It wall occupy a prominent place on my pirate Wall of Fame right above the NRD-515! From now on all my loggings will be in "Pirate Zone" standard time... :) Awesome!!!

Open carrier at 2320 UTC, test tones at 2321 UTC, then ambient music at 2322 UTC Just at or above the noise floor here.
2327 UTC Seems to have gone missing

Our old friend turned up here tonight....first time I've heard them on this frequency. Very weak but fading in above the noise now and then. Thanks for the confirmation on this kilokat :) I wasn't sure until the Lucky Strike commercial.

JOE SAMPLE R.I.P. 1939-2014

Joe Sample, who became a jazz star in the 1960s as the pianist with the Jazz Crusaders and an even bigger star a decade later when he began playing electric keyboards and the group simplified its name to the Crusaders, died on September 12, 2014 in Houston. He was 75. The cause was mesothelioma (cancer of the lungs), said his manager, Patrick Rains. Among the albums on which his keyboard work can be heard are Marvin Gayeís Whatís Going On, Joni Mitchellís Court and Spark and The Hissing of Summer Lawns, Tina Turnerís Private Dancer, Steely Danís Aja and Gaucho, and several recordings by BB King.

I had the good fortune to see him with the Crusaders opening up for the Rolling Stones in Boston Garden during the 1975 Stones tour. I had never heard of them at the time, but I was immediately impressed as soon as they started the opening number of the show. There was no question that the audience was also very impressed....they blew the walls out of the building!

General Radio Discussion / THE SKY IS FALLING

When I logged into AOL this evening to check my email, I was amused to find out that this afternoon's X1.6 solar flare was making headlines! Nothing at all in the article about us hapless shortwave enthusiasts. I did notice that earlier today, WWV on 10, 15, and 20 MHZ was basically inaudible. Anyway, isn't solar activity supposed to be on the down cycle?
