UNID 6962.89 AM 0005 11 NOV 2017
« on: November 11, 2017, 0006 UTC »
Very tentative report, but I see the carrier and sometimes I swear I can hear a bit of music.
0006 off? Carrier went away
0007 carrier's back
0008 and gone again. This may be a peskie, or it may be something else entirely. Will leave it up in case anyone making an SDR recording also copies this.

Yes, I saw it appear there shortly after I stopped logging it above. Same signal strength when it was around so I consider it highly likely to have QSY'd.

I have been following this station (6962.9 and 6964.9) for some time. I've previously posted about it in Other, although I've suspected it was actually another Latin American pirate. Based on Antenna's observation of an S9+10 signal on an SDR in Chile, I'm convinced now that is is from Latin America. So I've moved this thread, as well as my previous one, here. Now we need to figure out who it is!  It's possible of course this is more of a peskie than a pirate, as I generally do not hear a lot of music, more taking. If we decide this is really a peskie, we can just move the threads again  :)

My report: The carrier appeared on 6962.9 at 2342z on 10 Nov 2017. Some breaks in the carrier as is characteristic for this station.  At 0010 it shifted to 6964.9.

Cool! First pirate from another continent I've ever copied, even as tenuous as this was for me. With my relatively meager setup and location, that's something I'm pleased with.
