Real strong here in KCMO S9+20 signal with great sounding audio too.

I noticed an e-qsl from RML as I was listening to the HFU shoutouts he did in this show. It was a pretty exciting minute or two. ;D

Another station is in there in addition to the music.  Everytime there is a break in music a station IDing as "California 777" tries to call whoever is sending the music.  Audio bandwidth on the music and signal strength (S8 or so) is consistent with Red Mercury.

Recorder catch:

6925 USB

Decent signal getting through the static tonight - same details as others.  Could just barely hear what sounded like someone trying to QSO with RML after the show ended.

00:52z-02:01z Red Mercury Labs

Audio (complete show): http://archive.org/download/ShortwavePirateRadioCont/RedMercuryLabs6925Usb0052z-0201z07-22-13.mp3

Thanks RML! :)

Could just barely hear what sounded like someone trying to QSO with RML after the show ended.

That sounded like PPVR here, but what he said was unintelligible.  Someone (poss RML?) replied "PeePee!", but it didn't sound like things went further after that.
