2340 UTC The static is getting rather heavy here....must be a storm brewing somewhere. Signal not quite as good as earlier.

Fairly strong signal 0000-0100+ with pop music and short IDs in EE by OM announcer, choppy audio due to poor propagation though.
Did not hear any contact info, did anyone else note an email address?

Again today at 2130 UTC tune in at S3 level amid some static, but in the clear. Yesterday there was no contact address given and a quick check of Iann's chat today reveals that there is no further info on this station. The signal reminds me somewhat of my Horizen FM receptions from earlier this year.

2200z ID with "shortwave" added
2205z ID again, with "shortwave"

s7-9 rapid fades but pretty good copy using both loop & beverage

I copied them well past 0100z last night & conditions seem less 'poppy' static wise tonight. Still daylight here so I hope it will get better...

Carrier has been visible for a while, and just now getting trace audio on the very high Q loop at local SS.  Just a visible carrier on the other guys.

I would agree with Skip that the audio sounds a lot like the bogus Horizon FM Canary Islands station. if that is the case this would be coming out of Ireland.

Yep, I agree, the signal strength was pretty good here both nights, compared to other Europirates.
