Undercover Radio 6925 AM 2242 UTC 28 Sep 2014
« on: September 28, 2014, 2249 UTC »
S7 at 2242z tune-in, playing 'Don't Fear the Reaper'.  Off without ID after that song.
Decent audio, some QRM from pescs on LSB.

Possibly same station back on @ 2257z with 'Born to be Wild', S8 signal.
0000z - repeated a phrase often used by Undercover Radio, but didn't copy an ID, then into 'Frankenstein'.
0005z - 'Walk This Way' -- S7
0008 - Dr. Benway with Undercover Radio ID's and email.

Thanks for the show.

"Don't let them see us, don't tell them what we are doing", presumed Undercover Radio but no official ID yet.  Great to hear your S9 signal again on the air!
