Virginia House Radio 107.7 FM in Richmond

1142 UTC / 0642 UTC hearing “Turn Turn Turn” by The Byrds with distorted audio underneath it that seems to be saying “6:42 A.M.” over and over.  At 1143 the background noise disappeared.  SIO 555 with nice sounding audio in downtown Richmond, Virginia.

Virginia House Radio 107.7 FM 107.7 MHz FM Richmond VA FM pirate heard on factory GM stock Chevrolet AM/FM car radio with factory antenna.

Checked 107.7 MHz around 1200 local time today March 15th....the usual Virginia House Radio signal was gone.  Not sure if they got busted or they’re QRT for another reason or they’ve moved frequencies.

I will try and check tomorrow and see if they’re back.

Have they returned or did they get the boot?

They’re back on the air as of me checking at 0930 local time March 19th 2020.  DJ talking about which supplies they have cached at Virginia House Radio.

0932 local - a quick snippet of the local NOAA Weather Radio station, followed by  dead air.  They’re still on the air though!
