Pirate Radio Boston, 6873.5, 0027, 6/27/16.  Rock music, reading a letter or reception report (Skipmuck I think) with ID.

S6 and noisy.

Catching PRB here at 0023 just above the noise and static with a S6 and good audio at peaks playing lots of tunes from "Weird Al". Caught ID at 0024. Thanks Charlie, been a real long time since I have heard you! Peaks now hitting at a S8 and sounding good at 0050!

00.15.35 UTC carrier appeared on my SDR recorder, into music
mostly illegible during that time period due to severe QRM by noise station
00.34 UTC announcements and talk, ID PRB and e-mail given
00.37 UTC Weird Al Yankovic - Eat It
00.40 UTC Announcemenrts again
00.44 UTC the word "Europe" heard but illegible for more
00.50 UTC Weird Al Yankovic - Canadian Idiot
00.55 UTC PRB IDs and e-mail given again, music then, but illegible until
01.26 UTC talk, sounded like a kind of comedy, but unsure
01.27.15 UTC carrier vanished

Wow, PRB made it again across the pond, but the QRG chosen was awful,
(see my pic attached), I had to reduce AM, even USB was better than real AM.
I just identified the records above, but most of the show was illegible.
The carrier drifted from 6873.4 up to 6873.6 at the end of the transmission.
SINPO was 21221 only, but anyway, thank you again Charlie for this nice show!
