S6 here, audio seems low but may be getting better.  Heavy sounding rock music @ 0337.
Dwight Yoakam song @ 0342.
Playing "Seasons In the Sun" [I think], for Skipmuck.

0347 - 'KCPR Wild West Show' and into "Slow Ride".

Carrier noted at 0330 UTC with audio at or just above the inverter noise here
0343 UTC Missed the shoutout but caught the end of Seasons In The Sun at 0346 UTC when signal picked up a bit. Thanks Doc! (For the shoutout, not the song 8))
0347 UTC Man announcer, then "Slow Ride"-Foghat
Signal here is S5 and above the inverter noise :)
0355 UTC Can't make out the song....hmmm

After I shut down the PC, I heard "Come And Get Your Love"-Redbone at 0505 UTC in USB right on 6875 and then AM. It came back up again at 0510 UTC then off at 0511.
Merciful deities, the solar power inverter noise was off completely just after 0500 UTC! Hmmm....maybe on a timer or something?

Tuned in at 04:00.  I don't recall ever hearing this pirate before.  S9 + 5 to 10 signal here on the WCNA (Victoria).  I haven't heard an ID yet, but understand it to be KCPR?  Signal appears to be overmodulated somewhat.  Measuring here on 6874.708, but drifting downward quite rapidly.  At least, I don't think it's my Perseus SDR.  Using a corner fed loop favouring to the north from my QTH.  Nice to get back into the pirate radio saddle!    QSL always welcome to canswl(at)gmail(dot)com!   73,...Walt

6974v USB / APR 05/ 0403-0444*
Picking it up here in eastern Nebraska with fair, but noisy signal, on 6974v USB.  Been awhile since I've heard KCPR.
Nice-sounding audio but unable to clearly ID music because signal often barely above static levels at my location.
S/off @ 0444 with SSTV transmission.

Coming in decently here in SE Kansas.  Signal up & down a bit with fading, and some interference from ALE.
Happiness is a good antenna system.

Now who is on 6875?
« Reply #12 on: April 05, 2015, 0512 UTC »
Nice sign-off of KCPR with a SSTV image and KCPR call-sign, around 04:45.  Now checking again, I have an op switching between AM (worse) and USB om 6875 (much stronger), but he dropped off at 05:11.  Will you be back?   73, Walt from Victoria, BC.

A very good signal here on the SDR recording, S9+ at times.

I also had the USB later, at around 0509z.
