Coast FM - 6205Khz AM - 10/22/2016 - 2046z
« on: October 22, 2016, 2048 UTC »
good signal and audio across the pond to the "right coast" of the US.
averaging S5, peaking to S7, fades in between.
appears to be about +100Hz from 6205Khz, receiving with 5Khz bandwidth.
2100z - local news (never heard a pirate with local news before)
2102z - station ID "coast FM... 102.5 & 102.7" then into Eurythmics - sweet dreams" - sounded like "102.5" but could have been "sixty-two-oh-five"
