UNID 3986 khz 1020 UTC 7 December 2017

Just pulled this in on the usual Half Moon Bay CA based SDR.  Gotta be a pirate, right? Signal at about S6 - S7.  Oh, and I was using LSB at the time.

Yes, pretty sure this was a ham playing music, vs an "actual" pirate.

Ever since 2007, Ham radio has had more child's banders who do play music without an ID.
This is but one of reasons I do-not work ham bands much these days and much prefer to do a more productive SWL hobby I began at age 12 with a Hallicrafters S-38E in 1957 ! :-[
