R Free Whatever 6930 0115UTC Dec 26
« on: December 26, 2013, 0143 UTC »
At first I thought is was Pirate R Boston, but I heard an id that sounded like "QRN"? but really couldn't make it out .  Weak with very deep fades. Play mostly 80 Metal music.  Heard Bullet Boys, Ratt and Maiden in there with other songs I could not ID.  About 0136 faded down below the noise and I'm just getting a weak carrier now.

This was Radio Free Whatever with their "QRM" series of heavy metal rock.
Yes, very weak,  band died rapidly.

Thanks,
I thought I heard a "Comrade" in there, but was pretty weak

Down to S5 here with rapid fading.  Conditions have deteriorated since the PRB show a bit earlier for me.
