UNID 8899am - punk tunes w/varied mix
« on: April 14, 2010, 0122 UTC »
Been off/on for several hours, pauses various tuneups and a sex pistols "Never Mind the Bullocks" set earlier - few gaps with strong empty signal during east coat gray line hours.

Have not logged precisely but the freq 8.899mhz should be distinct enough.

varied fades but SIO 343 from Central FL x last 2 hours.

Reportedly this was Radio Anarchy testing.
8899 AM
Since around 2228 UTC, hearing occasional thumping rhythms down in the mud, vocals sound like heavy metal yelling stuff. Jussst barely audible here, best in USB so far.

2243z: Lots of tweeps and tones, and a bunch of heterodynes - hets seem normal for 8900. Only station I've heard here before was an African clandestine.

2249z: More thumping, grinding rhythms with punchy bass on bottom end. Also a distinct carrier on 8900 but nothing audible there.

2300z: Rumbling bass suddenly stopped. Just a couple of carriers on 8899 and 8900.
2319z: Country-sounding song.
2337z: Ramones-sorta sounding music.
0034z: Still occasionally audible, rock music. Seems to be some long pauses between transmissions at times.

SINPO - 23311, lots of fades to inaudible with carrier completely disappearing, then floating back over noise. Some QRM from what may be an African clandestine on 8900 and pesque chatter on 8897 LSB.
