Undercover Radio, 6925u, 2-20-12, SINPO 44343
Nice strong signal here tonight - sign-on around 0220z.

Chis Issack - Wicked Game
Jimmy Buffett - Pirate Looks at 40
Thanks for the shout - a great signal still
0340z - Dr. B. back on SW and enjoying the spontaneity of live radio   :)  Solid S9.

1720 MW
0310z - I hear you on 1720 Dr. B.. Clear ID - very noisy - then into a song at 0311z - Shinedown's 45 (the guy's got great pipes).
Dr. B. has the distinction of being the first pirate I heard on SW in 2007 and now MW here recently and tonight.
0330z - You were faded down low before 0328z, now improved back up - opposite of DB.  
0335z - Thanks for the shout about SW and MW. I'm going to send a report for MW.

First 20 seconds are SW shoutouts to this board, then into MW.

Great show tonight Dr. B.. Lots of fun - thanks.

2/20/12, 6925.6 USB (approx), 0230z: Chris Issak "Wicked Game", Dr. Benway with Undercover Radio ID, Jimmy Buffett "Havana Daydreaming"? (mebbe wrong song), Doc w/ ID and e-mail info and Merlin maildrop.  Cracking open another cold one, talking about night vision or something, sky gazing.  "I'm talking about something extraterrestrial, something intelligent..."

Good signal peaks through heavy local noise.
