Caught part of this show at 0052Z with electronic dance music, but copy was weak here, alas.  0058Z possible synthesized talk, but I can't be certain.  Signal dropped beneath the noise by 0100Z - darn!  Thanks for the show, though.

Boombox Radio 6976.7 AM 0003 UTC 6/12/16
« Reply #9 on: June 12, 2016, 1013 UTC »
00.03 UTC carrier appeared on about 6976,7 kHz but illegible for any details until
00.51 UTC when I detected a female announcer
00.52 UTC into dance tune, very tent. Avicii - Wake Me Up, very deep fading
01.01 UTC another dance tune came through, but unknown to me
01.07 UTC announcement
01.08 UTC high voiced singer: you don't have the number (or similar)... I feel..
01.10 UTC most likely station ID but too weak to follow
01.11,5 UTC carrier disappeared for good (look at my pic)

I would say thanks for the show! Unfortuneately very tough to follow the tunes
here in Germany at my Perseus SDR, SINPO not better than 13111.
Anyway, an e-mail QSL of BBR would make my day! Thanks in advance!

eQSLs highly appreciated! RainBrandy@gmx.net
