BANGALORE POACHER 6880.1 KHZ AM 0343 UTC DEC 14, 2014
« on: December 14, 2014, 1056 UTC »
Caught this on a last minute bandscan at 0343 UTC with the usual zany mixture of nonsensical numbers and utterings by man and woman announcer, Lincolnshire Poacher IS, then some beeps, IS and OFF abruptly at 0353 UTC. Signal was about an S5, mostly above the noise with some fading. Nice to hear this one again...it's been awhile! ;D

SDR recording catch. 0334 sign on with a weak but listenable signal. Crashed a few minutes later, down to just a weak carrier. Off at 0353.

cool, I heard a carrier wave around here about that time.  I thought it was related to WHYP as they were on here earlier with the AM.  
I wish I heard it, I bet the numbers are a secret code that lead to a treasure or something.

I caught this with my coax that I thought was attached to a random wire. But it wasn't.  Now its fixed (the clothespin is holding the wire to the coax shield) and ready for action.

Nothing on the SDR recording at this end, although it comes in like gangbusters
to this location at times. Then again, there may be more than one recording
being played by more than one station, too.
