0129 UTC Another one, but the signal is deep in the noise now  :(
I recall back around 2014-2015? there was a station on 43 meters with random interval signals...NOT WLIS though.

Time to call it a night here...thanks for the hazy trip down memory lane when the shortwave bands were jam packed with all kinds of stations all around the world! The 1980's were an obsession with me...sad to see it's all gone.
A QSL would be very much appreciated! Sadly, that is another lost art from the golden days of shortwave.

I saw a signal trace on the waterfall of one of Chris's Kiwi's last night on 7000. I wonder if WLIS (We Love Interval Signals) has risen from the grave?

That's a pirate of some type. It takes all kinds. I haven't heard a pirate on the 40 meter ham band since Jimmy The Weasel went to his reward. JJimmy was active when you were probably in grade school, Shady.

Who was the guy WLIS was always making fun of?

I believe it was Ian MacFarland from Radio Canada International?
