Recorder Catch.  Times are not necessarily on/off times but may be fade up/down times.

Noted audio 0555, music (electronic) at 0556.  Around 0605 noted music(?) with ascending electronic tones.  Very weak and at the noise.
Audio (recording quality) is lousy, but is available if the op wants it.

I had this as well, on the SDR recording. It's definitely AM. Hearing music (could be electronic, or electric guitar) around 0556, S6 to S9 signal, but not much above the noise floor.
Audio sweep generator type sounds at 0607z.  Off at 0612. Never heard anything that even sounded close to an ID.

Thanks Chris.  Hans Hammarlund in the FRC reported this as an AM also.

Recorder catch:

6925 (rx in USB) SIO 222-322

Wouldn't have noticed this without the heads up - thnx JF :)  Similar signal & conditions here with sweep tones being the easiest to hear near the end of broadcast.

Audio (05:55z-06:12z): http://archive.org/download/ShortwaveOddsSodsTransmissions/Unid_pirate6925Am-usb55z-0612z06-29-12.mp3

Hi guys.  Did more mods to my tx.  Was running sweeps so I could see the frequency response.  From what I could see the bandwidth went clear up to 12k.  Of course I will limit to 10k.  I figured somebody would hear my testing.
