Weak carrier noted earlier, but am hearing audio just above threshold at 2155 UTC consisting of a man announcer. Copy is close to nada though, but hopefully will improve as local sunset approaches. I am getting nothing on the other frequencies listed at the moment.
2158 UTC I'm hearing distinct dance music at this time, so don't know if still relaying the RMI program or other programming
2201 UTC Man announcer...signal is picking up a bit, but still tough copy
(Getting weak carriers on 6210 and 6940 now, but no audio)
2238 UTC Signal jumped up a bit during dance tune...now S3/S4
2245 UTC Man announcer, into tune by Human League(?)
2259 UTC OFF

Checked several times from 2305 until 2320 UTC, and am only getting a weak carrier on 6210. Lots of noise on 48 meters this evening.

My humble apologies to anyone who was unnerved by my title to this innocent posting. When I first read the FCC posting of this, the first thing that came to mind was Don Quixote tilting at the windmill. I found it amusing that a possibly defunct fire fighting safety broadcast from a transmitter on a water tower could go undetected for nearly 12 years and then cause such consternation in the rank and file of the FCC. Reading the text of the message left me with a mental picture of 2 agents closing in on their prey with direction finding equipment, only to find an innocuous old water tower apparently still emitting an illegal carrier. Please, no more angry emails. The title was the first thing that came to mind, and rather than being clever, upset 2 individuals. I didn't mean to tap into the collective paranoia shared by the pirate radio community, and I didn't mean to disrepect our beloved YHWH ex-operator. I will refrain from any more postings of this kind in the future.

Noticed a weak carrier here earlier, then checked back at 2248 UTC and there was dance music at threshold level. Signal never rose much above the noise floor during several checks over the next 45 minutes. ID per Jari in Iann's chat is "I AM Radio", playing non-stop Italian disco from a webstream. Still audible at 2345, but the 48 meter peskies are killing it.
2353 UTC In the clear now, but too weak to ID any music
(Also noted during this opening were a weak carrier with just a hint of audio from Radio Mirabelle on 6290:ID per op in Iann's, and a Radio Ronalisa Test on 6400 KHZ with mostly threshold audio and brief snippets of a lady announcer including one at close down)

So all you ops out there, here's a chance to be the first on the block to read a million digits of pi to a worshipful audience! The spy numbers enthusiasts will be pi-eyed trying to decode the secret message :o

I'm hearing something here and not 6925...music. Hard to tell, but there is a loud het from 6925ish...hmmm

EDIT:I duplicated threads so I deleted mine and reposted here. I guess this was actually an AM signal with het from 6925.

Here also at 0409 UTC with S3/S4 signal just above the noise with fades. Sounded like a man announcer just before White Rabbit-Jefferson Airplane.
