Captain Morgan Shortwave 6925AM *0121 - 0217*
« on: June 08, 2012, 0156 UTC »
8 June 2012

0121 Seemed to come on with a block of 3 or 4 R&B tracks; familiar, but I can't title them
0139 OM talk, poss ID but didn't get it, poss addy
0141 More unid music
0144 Poss "JJ Flash"
0215 Still there, but barely; just hearing an occasional bass line

Was fair towards beginning, but signal has been tailing off since coming on; close to noise floor by 0148z

Thanks.  (and thanks for the ID, refmo!)

I've been listening to them here off and on from about the same time.  I am able to hear most of the music, but haven't gotten an ID.
SINPO=44232
0121z - 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' - Daft Punk
0124z - 'One More Time' - Daft Punk
0146z - 'Jumpin Jack Flash' - Stones
0155z - 'Keep on Smiling' - Wet Willie
0203z - 'Do You Know What I Mean' - Lee Michaels
0205z - repeat of 'Keep on Smiling'

I'm not positive that it has been the same station the whole time, but the signal level is consistent, right at my high noise level today.

Heard Captain Morgan Shortwave ID at 0217z and then off.

S9 signal on the SDR recording, but the noise was S7/S8, so tough copy at times.
