Radio Ronin Shortwave, 6940 AM, 0255 UTC
« on: July 07, 2012, 0311 UTC »
Tuning around the bands looking for pirate radio night-related stations, and oops!  Somebody's on 6940 AM.  Tune-in got me a song about the owner of a lonely heart, not sure who the artist is, though I'm sure I knew once.  Song vanished, as did carrier, partway through.  Back on close to the hour, right where it left off.  Time pips at the hour but no ID, alas.  Into... is that Blue Oyster Cult?  It sounds like the way they play.  Now into something I've never heard before.  Still sounds rock/80's to me, though.  SIO 534, signal would be blooming booming if the darn static didn't keep getting in the way.  

Edited to add: Oooops!  Just got a Radio Ronin ID.  Multiple station ID's and all sorts of assorted radio and television sound clips.  Goofiness!  :)  Now back into music.  Signal's improving a bit too.

This is Radio Ronin.  He was on with his IS on 6925kHz at 0255z, went off at 0258, and re-started 0n 6940kHz at 0300z.
