Sovereign Radio 3905 2342z Aug 22, 2020
« on: August 22, 2020, 2345 UTC »
Been listening to music on 3905 AM for over a half hour, fair signal S5 in New Hampshire and good copy when the USA SSB QRM subsides.

Heard an ID around 2335z, "This is eighties radio" but not too sure

2342z Cream - Sunshine Of Your Love
2350z Cover of Banana Boat Song
2353z Cover of Jamaica Farewell
2354z Ad for a Dublin clothes store
2357z Gave an FM frequency, maybe a relay of a commercial FM station
0000z Irish/Dublin/European news
0003z Mix: Papa Was A Rolling Stone, Dance To The Music, Horse With No Name, California Dreaming...

signal S9+15-20 on the SDR in NW Ireland
23.42 song "Sunshine of Your Love"

I got this information today

"You heard recordings of Radio Nova Dublin from the 1980s that I just happened to run through the night here, the normal Radio Sovereign playlist ends at 11:00 UTC and I normally fire various anorak recordings when I leave the TX on overnight.
TX power at the moment is 50 watts carrier, into an inverted L"
