Powerful signal here. Off the air following a digital signal. Not SSTV, not a waterfall image. I believe I heard the same mode last night when another pirate (Aarow Radio, I think) signed off. Anyone know what that is? I'm seeing a digital signal there now, but not sure if it's WEZL:


Oh! just heard a carrier, and looks like they're coming back on the air...

Just tuned at 0004, decent SIO 333 signal. Thanks for the show.
0006 hearing SSTV concurrent with broadcast, figure that's a different op. OM saying "goodbye"
0007 just SSTV now. Too weak to decode. (EDIT OM came back after a few seconds, still speaking as I type this)

6925 USB

Good signal here - Show was intermittent and could hear someone else sending SSTV underneath at one point, but their signal was barely audible here.  From Zeke's comments throughout the tx's, someone named Frank was trying to intimidate him which may explain the SSTV images in Big Badfish Al post (WEZL did not send those).

Had a partial SSTV image @ 2340z Scottie 1


Another partial SSTV image @ 0008z Martin 1


Easy Pal

Thanks for the show Zeke!
