ION RADIO Ion Radio 6930 AM 6930.3 kHz 6.9303 MHz 6.930.3 MHz AM mode pirate station Ion Radio

Carrier popped up just after 1200 UTC time,

1208 UTC - very faint modulation heard, sounds like ambient or psychedelic of some kind maybe?
1210 UTC - carrier may be closer to 6930.25 kHz now, hard to say if there's some sort of minor drift
1214 UTC - can hear an OM talking (very faint but certainly there)
1215 UTC - "legal deportation hearings" "from the White House"
1216 UTC - "the President wants to keep the aid program going" "Toledo, Ohio" "black men were arrested"
1217 UTC - "huge explosions on the planet Mars"
1219 UTC - "WKBW" commercial station ID
1220 UTC - "DO YOU HEAR ME DOWN THERE IN SOUTH CAROLINA"
1221 UTC - "we were all born naked....N A K E D naked"
1224 UTC - "Halloween night"
1224 UTC - "several persons have been injured...may have been killed" "East River Road on Grand Island"
1233 UTC - CW heard
1234 UTC - "all off-duty police officers report" hearing two-way radio chatter now
1241 UTC - "smooth metallic object" "state trooper I was just talking to"
1242 UTC - fading QSB getting a bit more pronounced
1243 UTC - "just what is going on down there?" "we have to get out of the immediate area!"
1253 UTC - "it just cut the helicopter in half...." signal is now considerably stronger, peaking at S7-S8
1254 UTC - sounds like War of The Worlds
1309 UTC - "some sort of gas spreading over the cars"
