Metro Radio International 6950AM +0218
« on: February 19, 2012, 0222 UTC »
0218 Tuned in to dance music
0219 OM & YL DJ talk - possible ment Metro Radio International  -- they had a male and female DJ tandem when I heard them in the fall
0223 back to music - some peaks to S8
0232 DJ ID prev track as "Wine" I believe.  Reasonably certain I heard an MRI ID and addy
0236 Back to the music
0242 solid Metro Radio International IDs, talk about their "Squeaky"
0249 Being overtaken by QRM
0255 Ment "We're going to end it now with..."  --  really fading deeply now
0302 Seems to be off now after a song

Poor to fair in noise, deep periodic fades; but occasional pop up to very good audio

6950.3 AM 222-322

Weak to fair signal just above the noise with little fade.  Listening in USB for better copy.

02:53z unknown song with synth
02:55z "...anyway, this is Metro Radio International..."
03:01z "...radio...radio..." from 'Mexican Radio' - Wall Of Voodoo

Audio (02:44z-03:01z): http://www.archive.org/download/ShortwavePirateRadioCont/RadioMetroInternational6950_3Am-usb0244z-0301z02-19-12.mp3

Thanks MRI :)
