UNID with music, just tuned in, S6.  Static and 6900 LSB chatter making this one a bit tough.

0218 UTC:  DJ banter between OM & YL.
0229 UTC:  Talk between OM/YL DJs and Metro Radio International ID and gmail address given, signal clear during this.
0242 UTC:  More banter between OM/YL DJs about Germany referencing to the last song.  Metro Radio ID and gmail address, then talked up the next track and into more music.  Peak up to S8 right now.

Enjoying this music, despite my inability to ID any of it.  Thanks Metro!

0211 Hearing a song with lotsa percussion, primal choral vocals...very interesting
0217 Hearing talk between what sounds like DJ Formaldehyde and Ms Synth, which would make this Metro Radio International.  Tent MRI
       ID heard, but was in a fade.
0220 Rock song with a driving beat.
0224 Rocker "Wake Up" from 1983
0229 Definite Metro Radio International ID, addy - had some peaks to S9+15 here
0232 Rocker "Moonchild"
0241 IDs, addy, another block of rock
0305 Have pescs on both the USB and LSB most of the time now; I get great audio still with either sideband, but not when they're
       both occupied.

Typical S9+7 peaks early on here, but with deep fades

Here's a 30 minute strength history (get out your dramamine)


Great show, Metro!  This is by far the best I have ever heard you.

Good carrier on the waterfall but audio is too far down in the noise to make anything out.

7/15/12, 6.899.2am, SIO 212, lots of noise on signal making for difficult copy.
At 2:44+ hearing male and female talking. At 2:47 back to music....sounds like punk ?

At 2:55 ops talking once again. Back to music at 2:56.
