9/16/11, 6930+some change USB, 0120z: Just tuned in, heard Captain Ron with a great monologue about why he does pirate radio.  Then into what sounds like some Offspring (I'm not too familiar with their songs, other than what I hear on radio, but the singer has a distinctive voice and style - same as with Zack de la Rocha and Rage Against the Machine).
0153z: Hey, got a shout-out from the Cap'n!  Back atcha.
Good signal and audio.  Mic problems last week seem to have been resolved.  Some local RFI but I can copy most of Captain Ron's commentary between songs.

About S-3 to S-5 in Northern Canada. Nice clear, steady signal. Not as strong as last week but still good copy. Great to hear the Captain again!
Please QSL to MaplRadio@gmail.com

Next weeks contest: guess how many Volkswagons can fit in Joy Behars mouth. I pick five.
