Blackbeard Radio 6950 AM 2130 UTC Mar 30
« on: March 30, 2014, 2131 UTC »
2130.. just coming clear now. Been hearing music for 10 minutes with male DJ voice over. S4, noisy. Sounds a bit like Premier Radio International.
2152 S7 now, music clearer, still no ID, noisy
2205 Dropped back to S4-5, very noisy. Still haven't got an ID. Music techno/dance sort of thing.

Station is just above the noise level at 2255z and the band is fairly noisy tonight. Can just tell that music is being played.
