2148 UTC "Radio Free Whatever Relay Network" ID, into an unid indie pop song-YL singer
2151 UTC RFW ID, followed by music and what sounds like an off air recording of DJDW, then OFF at 2152 UTC

I am curious as to who was doing the re-broadcast...
Here's a recording of the last 3 minutes: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uPMJ4atorwqXzKQbji7AuWbXFAz9fJ1x/view?usp=sharing

I didn't get to hear it. This sounded like a much older show from the recording. No idea who it was but the MixLR archive allows anyone to rebroadcast the shows.

Thanks to the radio comrade that put us on!

That's interesting, Skip. Last night when RFW was being jammed, I could either hear Zeke complaining about his jammers, or an off air recording of him going on about it? Zeke has a distinctive accent that stands out, there's no mistaking him when he opens his mouth. I tuned past it at first thinking it was the Mushroom Man?

I wonder if it was him or one of his ham pals who follow him around having fun? He was awfully quiet this holiday weekend.

I missed the jammer last night, as I was recording the entire Azteca re-broadcast. Going through the logs today, it appears that the jammer bouncing around the band might have been under the influence of the fabled mushrooms. Lots of odd hijinks going on lately, but nothing really out of the ordinary for pirate radio on the 43 meter band overall. I do wish that utility station that covers 6925-6928 would find another home...it is blocking a traditional part of the band and causing a pile up on the remaining available frequencies.

The old frequency of 7415 is open again, isn't it? It might be time to go back home.
