Solid S8 signal at dusk, with the signal getting better as the sun sets.

Electronic music, No ID heard yet

Several IDs now heard with voice ID over rock music

S4/S5 here at 0045 UTC with another eclectic selection from the XLR8 musical library :)
0048 UTC Another tune of indeterminate origin
0101 UTC "Pop Music"-M (origin determined on this one ;D)
0110 UTC "X-L-R-8" ID with some reverb!
0145 UTC and S7 peaks well above the noise....same level as TCS on 6876
0152 UTC Cool song! Wish I had Shazam...
0200 UTC SSTV! I gotta figure out how this MMSTV works....
Seems to be a varied number of ID's this evening amidst songs of indeterminate origin...funky tunes and punky tunes and others you can dance to....
0212 UTC And some reggae too!
0223 UTC "Fazon"-Sopwith Camel  :) Thanks XLR8! That was a funky tune for the early 70's! Awesome!
0232 UTC "Dear Mr. Fantasy"-Crosby, Stills, and Nash version from the CSN box set! Cool! Love that Stephen Stills wah wah pedal!
0239 UTC SSTV
0250 UTC Signal has dropped down to S5 peaks with the S-meter bouncing around a bit now.... :(
0301 UTC "Waiting In Vain"-Bob Marley (there's one for DJ Dickweed!)
0316 UTC Hmmm...can't remember if that was the Radio Bangladesh or Radio Nepal Interval Signal there....is that the intro to a song? I'm getting old...it might have been All India Radio ???
0320 UTC SSTV
0322 UTC One final "X-L-R-8" and OFF
Hmmm....are you taking requests tonight XLR8? How about "Fazon" by Sopwith Camel? I think that's one that hasn't been ever played on pirate radio before ???


Thanks for the really long show tonight! It was appreciated, and thanks for the request too! :)

Picked up signal ~0051 with clear ID @ 0110.
Usual selection of nice eclectic music.
Faint signal slowly improving as local sunset approaches.
Decent audio when static levels fade a bit.
Good show.
Just a boy with his radio and some wire.
Location: Omaha, Nebraska
QSLs always appreciated.
