Strong into Western MA tonight with nondescript New Age music....I believe this op was on here a few months back, same frequency. If this is a pesky op, it sure beats the fishtalk! ;D
0050 UTC Seemed to be some sort of talking by man in Portuguese between songs....also a man in Portuguese talking UNDER the music after that. Interesting! Are we being fair to not call this a pirate broadcast? Probably from a boat too! :D
How about a Grand Prize DX award for the first person to QSL a pesky! ::)
Actually, the music is kinda soothing after listening to the Euro's through the ear bleeding static the past few hours!
Just before 0100 UTC, the looped piano music started while the peskies started yakking under the music.
0109 UTC Siren type noises now....someone is having fun here....I think they put something in the vinho :o

Tango Italia is booming in here since 2355 UTC with S5 peaks! Best I've ever heard them. Signal is stronger than the static bursts from the local rainstorm.
Man announcer at 0000 UTC with ID's...the longest I've ever heard the op talk! 0001 UTC Tango!
0010 UTC The coolest jazz tango I've ever heard, with some flashy lead guitar work!
0018 UTC Short ID by man announcer, then a song that doesn't sound like a tango :o
0033 UTC CW and ID's in various languages by man announcer. IS?
0035 UTC Music
0038 UTC More CW and ID's, IS then off at 0039 UTC Carrier off at 0040
(Nice to hear Tango Italia with this good a signal...would have been excellent if not for the storm static. I'd give this reception a 45333 overall)

Just above the noise here from 2212 UTC with "You Better You Bet"-Pete Townshend and "Don't Stand So Close To Me"-Police. OFF at 2229 UTC

Fair signal here just above the noise with good peaks from 2007 UTC with late 50's/early 60's Doo Wop tunes, man announcer at 2019 UTC, into another Doo Wop tune. I love this "Clear Channel" frequency!

Strong signal here with moderate fading at 0220 UTC with "Mind Games"-John Lennon, into "Nobody Told Me"-John Lennon at 0225 UTC. Man announcer with email address... yourradioisinsane@gmail.com at 0228 UTC, then OFF.
(Thanks for the show tonight Insane Wayne! I think my clock is off a minute or so ???....too tired to check WWV now...will do it in the morning! ;) )

EDIT-Yes, my radio room clock is 2 minutes ahead and the PC clock is 1 minute ahead....no way to run a playground ;D OK class...recess is over! >:(

Radio Free Whatever at 2355 UTC with end of song and ID with DJ Dickweed giving rundown of songs played, into "Jailbreak"-Thin Lizzy, then AC-DC? Fair to good signal tonight in AM mode. Best in USB because of pesky QRM. Moderate amount of fading tonight with all this solar activity.
0006 UTC Signal buried in noise and pesky QRM very quickly! Did the CME just hit us? :o
0012 UTC Signal back up with DJ Dickweed with rundown of songs played
Off at 0020 UTC?

Here also fading in and out of the noise floor with fair peaks from 2143 UTC tune in. Sounds like a 70's rock tune, into another tune at 2148 UTC seemingly by same group. Clear ID at 2155 UTC, into yet another tune by same group? Vocalist sounds like Paul Rodgers of Bad Company.
2205 UTC Jimi Hendrix
2207 UTC Man announcer with ID and email, then more Jimi Hendrix
2210 UTC Led Zeppelin
2217 UTC Man announcer with ID, then off

Honestly Al, I would never suspect you of exhibiting such prurient interest in paleolithic Hallmark ornaments. On the other side of the story, I found the following that might confirm moof's observation. This from the We Five official website...also see attachment....

Bob Jones joined the pre WE FIVE Ridgerunners shortly after meeting Mike and Jerry at the University of San Francisco in 1963. His electric 6 and 12 string guitar work is one of the signature sounds of the "You Were On My Mind" and "Make Someone Happy" albums. In addition, Bob recorded five albums with Michael Bloomfield on which he played drums, guitar and sang. They also toured the United States and Canada for ten years including playing the Newport Jazz Festival.

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?

Wow, haven't heard that song in ages....I think I was 10 years old at the time. Are you referring to the girl in the group, Beverly Bivens? I know they made a lot of money off this song, which was originally recorded by Ian & Sylvia. Just around this time, I was getting some vague stirrings while watching "I Dream of Jeannie"...there was something about Barbara Eden that was making me feel a little uneasy ;D

Fading in and out over a really low noise level here at 2135 UTC with a pair of Jimi Hendrix tunes, into an eerie electronica mood music instrumental. 2152 UTC electronica mood music with a techno dance beat. The noise level is so low, I am getting good copy during the fade ins, which are about 50+ % of the time. My first time for this station, although I haven't heard an announcement or ID yet.
Faded down to threshold at 2158 UTC, then back up again at 2208 UTC still playing spacey techno instrumental music.
2215 UTC Clear ID by man announcer! Nothing heard after this, so maybe off?
(Very pleased to hear this :) )

OK, now this should complete the information for anyone interested in having a program broadcast over a licensed station in Germany for a small fee :) Go for it! :)
