Piggy stuff 32233 over this side of the pond. Intrusive static crashes and qrm to the upper side band.

Solid S8 here at 0044 UTC tune in with OM giving full ID..."broadcasting from a pigsty" and giving a phone number fro reports, followed by a song about an "Army of Pigs". Interestingly, even in AM, the original recording sounds like it was recorded using one of the sidebands....I wonder if this op is still around somewhere?
0051 UTC "Little Piggies Jumping On the Bed" 8)
OFF at 0055 after music box IS

Thanks WPIG relay! Nice to hear an early start to the 4th of July weekend :)

Thanks for the info Chris L! I hope all those scary looking things are off your arm and healed properly!
