I have a carrier and weak audio.  WDOG announced that a test would be done at this frequency and time.
0205 carrier still in waterfall, but audio is gone.
0215 Some audio (music) in USB mode but signal is AM
0216  Thanks to Paul65 for ID

0216 heard end of pop music interspersed with dog barks and morse code, then ID, then gone. Now it's on 1720 and now at 0222 suddenly off after male ancr IDed and mentioned short people. Nice signal here at Burnt River ON, 100 miles ne of Toronto. My e-mail is schernos at sympatico.ca if WDOG wishes to QSL. Nice timing. I finally saw the movie Pirate Radio for the first time, a few nights ago. Dunno why I waited so long to see it.

0225 UTC Tuned in and finally a fade up amidst the heavy noise...no luck on IDing the tune yet
(I have audio on USB and also note a carrier....not sure if the same station)

Here's a 2 minute recording from 0225-0227 UTC with 2 very weak fade-ups in the noise..thanks for the test! I was tuned to 1710 USB.

Back on 1710 at 2126, signal not as good there as 1720. Now gone... Signal cuts out here and there as well. Clearly testing IMO.
