Radio Corsair 1710 AM 0030 UTC 19 OCT 2019

Someone (maybe Radio Corsair?) with relaxing electronic music, strong at times but with long deep fades.  No announcements heard yet.

0146: ID and tech talk dialog regarding audio chain, transmitter, transmitting antenna, etc.

Noise from our dishwasher running, but still a pretty good signal with ambient electronic instrumental music (a lot like X-FM's background music). First pirate I've heard on 1710 since Tater Patch Radio.

Came back from a dog walk & went out to the car & heard the operator talking about how the transmitter is homebrew at 500 watts into an inverted V with a ground screen. Talked about how much the ground screen helped & how the inverted L was so much better than the dipole that he'd used earlier this year. Also talked about how the music from earlier was by Windows 96 (a band) and the upcoming talk show

Signal is excellent tonight in my Toyota Car Radio. Amazing sound. Ambient techno music and talk from time to time via OM. SINPO: 44444 overall some fading and some QRM from the broken Hudson TIS station there which seems to always sound bad there. Thank for the broadcast.

He needs to go vertical if he wants daytime distance coverage.

I guess he knows that.    8)
