Thanks for saving the evening Red Hat! Fair signal with great AM audio here at 0206 UTC amidst some static! ID and now at 0212 UTC we have Dirty Laundry.
0218 UTC "Who Loves You"-Frankie Valli
0221 UTC Casey Kasem intro to "Lying Eyes"-Eagles
0226 UTC "Island Girl"-Elton John
0245 UTC Signal down quite a bit from 15 minutes ago...the bass is booming in nicely, but the high end is lost in the static.
0300 UTC I believe you were giving shoutouts to the HFU posters....heard one to rdla4 and RCCI...if I was in their somewhere I missed it, but thanks if you did!
In addition to some tunes I can't ID, were "Saved by Zero" and Lunatic Fringe which ended at 0325 UTC. Couple clear "Power of X" IDs here and there also.
0332 UTC Thanks for the shoutout! Heard it that time :)

Just turned the radio on and found X-FM on 6945.  Great audio as usual with S6-S7 signal over moderate static.

Looking forward to decoding the C-QUAM from the SDR recording, which has been running all night.

Great to hear you again!

First pirate I've heard in a long time.  Fairly decent signal in Santa Barbara, Calif., at 0455 UTC.  Currently listening in USB on a Index Labs QRP Plus rig which does not have AM, but am able to notch the carrier out via an Autek QF-1A filter. 

Have they given a QSL address yet?  I heard something about a Gmail address, but was not able to copy it all.
