"Dark Star"? 6925 U
« on: June 07, 2008, 0808 UTC »
Hoping someone else can help with this ID.

Thursday night, 6/6/08, 0030 UTC 'til just after 0100z, heard two overlapping shows around 6925 USB, slightly off less than 1 kHz from each other, swapping signal strength. Moody, emo type stuff heard loudest, 0030-0100, possible ID with male and female ops just before 0100z.
0102z After Joni Mitchell, "Big Yellow Taxi," ID sounded like "Far beyond ... (inaudible) ... "This is Dark Star - Real Pirate Radio."
Signal strength dropped for this station, second increased, retuned to song by Morissey or Smiths.
