87.9 Newport Pirate Radio 6770am, 0225utc, 28 Aug 2016
« on: August 28, 2016, 0230 UTC »
Tuned in at 0225utc, weak sig with throbbing FM of carrier but punk rock in AM. Not the usual programming on this freq. (edit) Switched from Drake R8 to Panasonic  RF-4900, sig still has throbbing freq modulation, stn playing heavy metal now (dazed and confused), sig fading in and out. (2nd edit) storms approaching, must shut down, sorry.

S9 with light, quick fades @ 0248 with "Water"

Newport Pirate Radio has a live stream, so someone may be playing that..?
