4020kHz music station, pirate?
« on: December 02, 2019, 1531 UTC »
Tuning around last night around 10pm cst. Don't recall any stations on this frequency but know of pirates using frequencies nearby recently. Not sure what the music was, sounded a bit like rock that I couldn't identify but lots of fading.
I'm not saying aliens are in the radio, but aliens definitely are in the radio.

Are you sure it was 4020 KHz and not 4055 KHz (Radio Verdad from Guatemala)?
Just somebody with a radio, a computer and a pair of headphones...

AM mode and yes I know the frequency is correct. Had very deep fades which is why I gave up on trying to hear it after a while. Programming had sharp transitions between songs with no cross-fades, reminded me of someone broadcasting from windows media player or something.
