SDR recording catch

2058 Weak carrier
2100 "Eye Of The Tiger", SIO 222 or so at best
2102 Off / faded out
2103 Faded in or back on with "Eye Of The Tiger", about an SIO 333, 444 on peaks.
2105 Off, faded out
2106 Weak carrier, some traces of audio
2108 Off again

Perhaps someone testing? Maybe pirates are finally using it instead of 1710, which is blocked by several TIS stations.

2352 Noted again with a carrier on the SDR recording
2357 "Eye Of The Tiger"
2358 Off
0003 Back with "Eye Of The Tiger", SIO 444. On and off a few times, transmitter testing? Maybe even SIO 555 now and then.
0008 Off
0009 Back on, but much weaker. Lower power? Still "Eye Of The Tiger"
0014 Off

Hah... I was listening to the SDR recording of Radio Corsair, and "Eye Of The Tiger" appeared on 1710 at 2358 UTC :)

I see Tater Patch likes to play "Eye Of The Tiger": https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,60076.0.html
