Several IDs. Freq moving up 6926 and back to 6925. Good signal. Thanks for the show. Good signal through local thunderstorms and heavy noise. Sounds good.

Just about the turn in for the evening when something came up on 0211 UTC at S6 on 6925 USB...YL with ID as This is Twangy Radio, followed by percussive techno music. Brief silence, then ID at 0213, same music and silence at 0215 UTC
0216 UTC Same techno beat, then YL with ID
0218 UTC YL with ID mentioning sideband, live, 6925 and "This is Twangy Radio"

Listened back on the recording from last night and details below...

Funky music segment

Recorder Catch on 6925 USB.

Twangy Radio was in here at very good level, with all the details as posted above.

BTW, Twangy...Mom is always talking about you in glowing terms, and sez you are the perfect gentleman when you show up at the door.  She calls you "the son she never had", whatever the F*** that means.

Thanks for the show!

SDR Recorder Catch
S7 to S8 - some slight fading into Chicago area

0203 - Carrier noted, possibly tuning up or testing
0206 - 0208 - Movin' On Up - The Jefferson's Theme - repeated thrice
                     I think they use this theme as their Interval Signal
0210 - into a funky tune snippet
0211 - Positive ID by YL as: "Twangy Radio" repeated twice
0212 - a gong (?) sound
0212 - back into the same funky tune snippet
           some dead air
0213 - by YL ann - "Coming to you live on 6925, (twang, twang sound) this is Twangy Radio"
0213 - more of that funky tune
0216 - by YL ann: "Broadcasting from jfarleys mothers basement, this is Twangy Radio"
0216 - more of that funky tune
0218 - ID by YL (twang, twang sound)
0218 - more of that funky tune
0219 - by YL ann: "If you like your pirate radio, you can keep it. This is Twangy Radio"
0219 - S/Off - QRT

Thanks for the Twangs!!
