Faint signal but clearly heard man whistling at-2107.
Now hearing possible story but noise levels makes  for difficult copy.
First pirate station heard at my locale since Nov 03.

Tuned in at 2116utc, weak but clear signal with low noise, hear an old radio drama, at 2124utc song "yo ho ho and a bottle of rum", at 2132 heavy metal tune, signal getting a bit stronger but it may just be the type of music, at 2136utc Cheech and Chong song "up in smoke", at 2145utc SSTV/FAX, at 2147 2nd SSTV/FAX, at 2149 3rd SSTV/FAX but a short one.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
