Good copy on the west coast of British Columbia at 23:49Z...not overly strong here but a very quiet band so no problem with the copy. Nice audio as usual. Thanks for the show.

Rock Lobster! (at 0000 UTC)

Nice clean S9 signal, a little (likely local) noise but nice copy nonetheless.  

0002 - some sort of buzzzzzzzzz ute QRM, signal still S9 but a bit noiser.
0003 - QRM is still there but not nearly as strong.  I know there are several ute stations that use the 6940 to 6950 kHz section.  

Edit at 0008 UTC:

I pulled this up on the K2SDR NJ based WebSDR and played with the passband a bit.  Wolverine Radio is running nice and wide audio.  Cranked the @ -60dB filter bandwidth from the default of 2.95 kHz wide up to 4.01 kHz wide and the audio is now armchair AM-level quality.  Even nicer at 5.05 kHz wide.  Wolverine Radio makes SSB sound like AM with a bit of tweaking on the passband control.  

0010 - Stray Cat Strut  ;D
0013 - ID (mellow) "Wolverine...Radio"  The ute QRM is now completely gone (even with the bandwidth cranked wide open)
0017 - signal dropping down quickly - music almost at the floor now at both my local RX location and on the WebSDR.  Pescadore QRM from 6950 LSB now overpowering the Wolverine Radio signal on 6945 USB.  Dropped the bandwidth back down to 2.95 kHz which helped a bit but I can still hear the peskies in there.  Condx must be changing
0019 - Signal now right at noise level on the SDR.  
0020 - Moving up a bit.  I can hear music there but can't ID it through the peskie QRM (on the SDR).  
0021 - Still a S9 (but with QRM) on my local QTH RX, music, "...cat"
0022 - signal improving a bit "no, no, nooo, you're not the one for me"
0024 - Wolverine Radio ID (with echo FX)
0024 - SSTV
0027 - more SSTV (slightly weaker than the previous one...)

Is there a contact address and do these guys send out their QSL?

Wolverine Radio seems to be one of the most enigmatic pirate stations out there.  I don't know any of email or maildrop physical address or QSL cards in existence (somebody please correct me if I'm wrong here - as I'd like one too!)

The closest thing Wolverine Radio seems to do to a QSL card is their SSTV transmissions, which some could consider a form of "eQSL" ;)
