Waterfall 1720 kHz Jan 14 - 15 2019

An overnight waterfall created with Carrier Sleuth. I wonder how many of these signals are pirates?  I tried listening to the SDR recording a few times during the peaks, and there may have been some audio way down there in the noise.

Really interesting to see these close-up carrier waterfall displays

For that matter, I wonder if any of these could be European pirate carriers? The Greek MW pirates in particular often use the high 1600s & 1700s . . . and they often use a lot of power.
