Probable Radio Corsair heard about 0330 utc. The signal is definitely easy to see and the upper and lower sideband audio is clearly defined. There is a lot of chuff from stations on 1700, but there are times it is a pirate signal and I hear the music. Great to hear the station there.

Signal improved greatly and some good music was heard. Thanks for the tunes.

I've had this station on in the background for an hour and it's been nonstop techno. The signal has been getting stronger, although I can hear the Flight 93 memorial station underneath it.

I've only recently been listening for pirates, so I cannot say if it is Radio Corsair. From the previous comments, I'd say it's a close match.

1710 AM Radio Corsair 0625 utc

Just heard the ID for Radio Corsair and DJ commentary. He did an excellent job clearly describing the artists. Love this music. Good job. The last song is being played now.

I noticed that I can listen in USB when fading and interference get bad.
