Radio Pirana 6930 AM 2325 UTC 28 Mar 2017

Presumably Radio Pirana on again, SIO 211 to 222. Hoping for some nice peaks again overnight.
Yes, confirmed by the operator, I noticed the carrier going off and on at exactly the time he had some problems.
This is a good station to sit on for a while, eventually you might get a nice peak.

I am hearing weak music and  some talk. If it weren't for the static crashes, I could actually copy some of this.

Carrier a bit above the noise floor, but no audio heard from 0015-0025 UTC. Will continue to keep the ears open on this one!  :)
Plenty of T-storm static crashes from off the VA & NC coast, as well as a good size blaster out KS, OK & TX way is making things difficult!
0100 UTC Not a trace of audio to be heard above all this snap, crackle, and pop  :(
