Captain Morgan Shortwave 6950 AM 0135 UTC 02 MAR 2023
« on: March 02, 2023, 0136 UTC »
Sounds like a very weak music beat and some peskies.
0139: Peskies seems gone with some EDM. Signal is stronger now.
0156: Signal went from being unintelligible to readable. Signal is AM and Captain Morgan Shortwave ID.

Just like Pigmeat said.

0218: Off for good I believe.

Sounds like Van Morrison, but the signal has taken a nosedive.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

At first I thought it was Partial India Radio moving up, the carrier looked the same on the waterfall. But the fat AM sound gave it away as something else. Captain Morgan's transmitter has very distinctive sound.

Partial India Radio used to be transmitted via an amped up boat anchor that made Sanjay and Harold sound like Shiva and Brahma echoing off Mount Meru? I was a bit disappointed those scamps didn't have that big sound last night, by Vishnu.
