Celtic Music Radio 6955 USB @ 0145 MAR 05
Brief IS into possible Celtic-like music. Signal deep in noise floor and copy a bit rough.
At 0206 signal is slowly improving with another nice vocal piece..
Finally caught clear ID @ 0212 but not sure if station gave contact info.
Really good stuff; too bad conditions preclude full enjoyment of the broadast.
Thanks for the show.
Thanks guys for station ID.  Copy still difficult at the moment.

Sounded like a short clip from "King of the Hill" followed by short silence.  A few moments later  sounded like a musical busy phone signal.  Now @ 2139 two women talking.
Missed possible ID; it's a little noisy here and copy a bit rough.
AT 2155, after apparent s/off, another phone call in progress.
Sounds like a broadcast playing phone calls of people being intimidated by IRS scammers to pay fraudulent fines.

My reception is not the best, but is the woman yanking this guy's chain?
I don't know whether to laugh because this guy's attempt to get money from this woman is going nowhere or the woman is too scared to follow instructions to this guy's satisfaction. (I keep hearing an occasional laugh in the background.)

At the end of the broadcast the woman commented if she saved or stopped someone else from falling prey to a scammer, she had done her job.  Well done!

Now hearing long CW message (not set up to copy.)
SSTV @ 2330 (Caught me by surprise) but got partial copy as AMPHETAMINE RADIO.

Pancho Villa on 6950 USB @ 0457 FEB 21
Huge signal with station ID in English and Spanish.
Pancho now speaking and discussing Donald Trump with another OM @ 0502.
Also heard from Sarah Palin, Glenn Hauser, Jay Smilkstein, PeeWee Herman, Jonah Hill(?) and I think that was Jack Nicholson doing the opening intro.
Apparently off air @ 0512.
After station went off air, SS ops came on a few moments after on USB, not usual LSB.

UNDERCOVER RADIO on 6925 USB @ 0257 FEB 21
Station ID @ 0301 then back into music.
Checked back @ 0321 and nothing.

Sent an e-mail to Dr. Benway after the broadcast and he said:

"...It was a relay. An old show I never play anymore about a mad man with weapons of mass destruction. - Benway"
