I'm getting it closer to 3873, a longstanding ham AM frequency.  Bozo playing music and yelling at his audience like a CBer.

SINPO=55555, very strong here.

Mud Duck "up in the North East Corner" with a rather creative New England accent.

158- OM talking politics. Pro-Trump talk. Keying mike off and on.
201- Recorded YL reciting pledge of allegiance with music in the background.
202- American National Anthem by YLs chorus.
204- OM gives email address of K something at yahoo.com. OM calling out to other CBers. He's running a Realistic Navajo 433.
206- Air Raid Sirens, then some anti-Chinese comments, and now sound effects.

254- Clip of Ronald Reagan debates against Mondale, then off.
244- Clip of Trump campaign speech, then off, and then Trump speech again.

Clearly a CB guy.

Hearing him loud via NA5B near Washington, D.C., talking (badly) about Biden and Harris. He's talking with a (fake?) Boston accent to other hams, so he's more of a ham with a particular schtick than a pirate.

Heard the tail end of the pledge, now the National Anthem loud and clear in D.C. land
0209 Now air raid sirens! Voice (Trump?) says, "I like that, nice touch."

Yeah agreed after listening to him for a while. When I first found him he was playing Iron Butterfly and it sounded more pirate-like, but he quickly devolved into a ham-troll.

0257 Great copy with Trump speech then suddenly stepped on , but now it sounds like Timtron has joined in , or someone that sounds just like him
0305   Definitely Timtron and another guy at this time but there is music in the background
0310   TT is making me laugh

0333 Tim and I think, Bob , still R vs D but is civil. Dire Straits/ walk of Life pretty clean under
0342 Def Leopard/Armageddon it
0350 Journey/ faithfully

0357 Trump speech clips resume , intermittently

Thanks for the heads up

0230  Music and talk.

S5 with increasing noise in a short time.  I didn't stay with it as I found it as I was turning things off for the night.
