(NOT Blue Moon) 6705 AM 1626 utc 08 Jul 2019
« on: July 08, 2019, 1636 UTC »
on 6705.0-
1626 some bpm, hard to tell if it was music, 1632 pop from the 60's,
1634 next record,  etc... 1706 going on
1822 always under the continuous roll of T-storm crashes, some music barely guessed, 1827 same conditions
1852 at least useful audio after many antenna tries, but suddenly off? at 1853
1902 back ! surprisingly better now !, music
1916 ...com ??, "Don't let me be misunderstood"
1942 couple of words, "In de port Amsterdam" ? partly like Brel's song ?
1946 DJ, "Baby please don't go"
2002 ...report to..., "On my radio", "Come together", R&R, "Down on the corner",
2014 "Just the two of us", still Unid
2047 DJ, pop, 2052 ID :  ...mike? delta,  music
2057 more talking, but fading down under crashes and voice SSB, 2100
2108 music and unclear announcements, 2127 "Lady Jane", "Don't bring me down"
2133 off
(nothing from the NL, so NMD is very dubious)
edit : see the reply from ukdxer, quoting the ID as Bluemoon Radio (from Irish Paul's blog). Maybe it will be clear if the station comes back on 6705 in the next few days.
edit : see reply #7, not Blue Moon !

Irish Paul's blog says 6705 is Blue Moon Radio from Ireland https://irishpaulsradioblog.blogspot.com/

Looking at some of the music played it didn't look like a typical Dutch pirate playlist so BMR did cross my mind, a move from 6850 kHz

I agree that this was not a typical Dutch station, but that station failed to give any clear announcement. At a time, I heard something like an announcement played at half speed!
And if it was Bluemoon radio what's that "delta" ?

Per an email from BMR today (9 July 2019):

Hi Dan,
Iím afraid the station you heard was not BlueMoon Radio. We have never operated on that frequency and are currently using 6850khz.

The playlist sort of reminds me of the USA pirate Mix Radio International or The Relay Station and they sometimes broadcast in AM mode in that bands with high power.
