Rippin' huge S9+10 signal here in the Boston burbs, nice audio. Fast paced Euro style show with voice spots and music. Very interesting!

Radio Illuminati ID at 1630. Really excellent S9+10 signal in the Boston burbs. Montage of songs, op wants people to list the song titles as a sort of contest.

I also have the B52's at 1508 UTC. Nice S7-S8 signal. ID, then into U2 New Years Day at 1509 UTC.

Tune-in at 2020 UTC with an R&B kind of song I don't recognize. Very nice S8-S9 signal with some minor fading. Very nice signal and interesting choice of frequency, seems to work well for a lot of listeners!

Just flipped a switch, did you? Went straight to S9+10 from almost nil at around 1628 UTC.

My opinion: we have it so easy these days to get the word out about a broadcast on a new/unusual frequency so that others can tune in almost instantly. HFU forum log posts, as well as the very excellent HFU Rocket Chat system (which hopefully everyone here is using!) plus the fantastic capability for SDRs to 'spot' signals where radios with knobs aren't looking.

I remember in the 90s there being quite a sense of crisis when the old favorite pirate frequency of 7415 became crowded by strong SWBC stations and then eventually WBCQ took the frequency. Where would pirates go, and how would listeners find them? Maybe some enterprising DXer would be spinning the knobs enough to stumble over a new frequency, and report it to the A*C*E, where other readers might find out about it... 45 days later. Eventually 6925 became the new 7415 but it was not an easy time for pirate DXers during that transition.

We're a lot better off these days with tools on the listener side (SDR) and lines of communications in real time between listeners, and listeners and ops, at no cost. I'd also mention that we are a fairly tight community, and fortunately a lot of trust issues (to say things diplomatically?) that festered over the last decade or so have more or less dissipated as certain individuals have dropped out of the scene; pirate operators can feel reasonably comfortable dropping by the forums, or the chat, and mentioning that they are on the air. Hey, don't even tell us what frequency, maybe finding you would be part of the fun... so in other words, the chicken/egg problem Chris describes can be fairly safely overcome with some careful communication by the operator. 

The nice thing about 4085 is that a lot of people are going to have antennas already for 75m and will be well suited to receive your signal, and perhaps even join in on the fun.

Elastica "Stutter" (a perfect 90's alt-rock song) to open, listening via the Westminster MD KiwiSDR.

Wait, you've heard tales, or did you mean to say tails?

English station list again at noon. One of the stations we picked out of the audio on the chat was WNYG in Medford NY. The Wikipedia page states this is an affiliate of "Radio Cantico Nuevo". Sure enough a stream with that audio has been found:

Doesn't bring us closer to where this TX is yet, but some clues.

I was listening to the COMMSIGMA SDR at around 11 AM Eastern today and there was clearly an English speaking voice running down a list of stations, with a mention of one in Jersey City. I couldn't really hear anything else and I searched the Jersey City angle, and there's 2 stations that are licensed there, but I didn't really get the sense that they were necessarily related.

Listening for a noon TOH repeat of that, maybe, which could yield more clues.

Good S7 signal here, but with some audio difficulties to start. Edmund Fitzgerald. Op states "this is Amphetamine Radio and not the Edmund Fitzgerald station".  :D

Huge S9+10 carrier here, but the audio is a little low/undermodulated relative to the carrier. Still a great signal. Tears for Fears at 1725 UTC.

Booming S9+10 signal at 2228 UTC.
