Thunder Chicken Radio 6955 USB 2152 UTC 22 JAN 2024
« on: January 22, 2024, 2152 UTC »
2152 Just tuned in, SIO 444. Not exactly sure yet what I listening to. Someone, or several people talking? Sound effects?
2159 OM speaking, but low modulation. Off?
2200 No, back with sound effects.
2207 Music. 6955.1 might sound a little better?

2228 SSTV



Thanks for the wonderfully weird pirate radio!

Not loud out here near Seattle, but this is audible with music at 0024 UTC. To get reception of a pirate during West Coast daylight hours is a little unusual.
