Hearing techno music just before 2200 UTC tune in.  S6 signal strength in NY.  Not sure if this is a Euro or not.

Radio Blackbeard was S3-S6 in NH - good copy and mostly at or above the noise.

He was having trouble with his microphone but managed to get it working (with lots of hum) a bit before he signed off around 2230z.  I managed to hear a shout-out and an ID in the hum - radioblackbeard@hotmail.com
