Tuned in at 0001, weak music, ID at 0006Z.  Signal getting stronger now, but still can't ID that music.

Nice S9 signal, but audio is weak & maybe a bit muffled? Computer-voiced YL IDs are kind of tough to copy, but I heard an announcement a few min ago. At about 0012, played Archers of Loaf "Web in Front." Dead air, then live announcement, but mic seems to be cutting out. Now a live song that seems to be at a higher level.
Thanks for the show & please QSL

I beleave this is the station I started listening to at 2343
Station has a nice looking caqrrier!

0017 male ID This is the voice opf the planet zulu repreated twice

Then one of my montors died had to do a switch out
Playing music that is not punk but leaning that way

S8-9 here but the noise floor is a real problem tonight
big audio gap from 0015-0018

0018 sounds like a live track with one of the band members talking then into the music.

0021 "Save it for later"
0025 you are listening to the voice, the voice of planet Zulu
0033 "two months off"
0036 "wait for the black out"
0039 possible ID
0040 off



Thanks for the show!

A mix of music since 2359 here.  A couple of YL announcements (not sure if they were IDs or not).  
0011 OM ID "This is the..this is the..this is the Voice of Planet Zulu".
0014 Very low audio, possibly intermittent?
0017 Live OM with a rock ballad.
0024 OM ballad over piano, crowd cheering
0029 OM with announcement with intermittent audio, then upbeat track "You Bring..."?
0035 A rocker
0039 OM ID - mic audio was fine this time, and off

Around S9 peaks, S7 typical.

Thanks VO Planet Zulu!
Your QSL would be sincerely appreciated.

There is something very weak on 6925 AM.  I can make out occasional music and maybe talk.  Not much else.

Strong signal here but ID announcements are a bit weak in the audio compared to the music. Peaking with an S9 signal with numerous static crashes -  45334

0030 - Male ID announcement "...The Voice of Planet Zulu..."
0034 - Male ID announcement again. Stated one more song then gave time as "0034 UTC"
0034 - music played
0038 - ID given 3 times by computerized voice
0039 - off air

SIO 222 into Madison, weak music and maybe talk, though the latter was hard to discern.  I didn't recognize anything, other than the fact that the tracks I heard were rockish in nature.  QRT by 0040Z.
