WGAY 6925 USB 2228 UTC 21 Aug 2016
« on: August 21, 2016, 2228 UTC »
Someone else just signed on, repeated "This is WGAY" IDs.

Checking the SDR recording, they were on as early as 2211z, but much weaker then.

I hear WGAY at s9 but I'm also hearing Beatles underneath. Sounds like two stations here.
