Captain Morgan Shortwave 6925.1 AM 2345Z Dec. 29 2013
« on: December 29, 2013, 2348 UTC »
I have a weak AM station that just came up on 6925.1. Barely above my noise level on the west coast. Lots of peskie interference. Hearing music at the moment...hopefully it will come up enough to ID it.
Apparently, a listener with better copy than me has ID'd this station as Captain Morgan Shortwave. Still very weak on the west coast.

Heard here around 2354z on the SDR recording. Very tough copy, due the pescadores.
