SDR recording catch. Likely another pirate from Greece/vicinity. Carrier noted from around 2330-0037 sign off. Audio heard starting around 0010 UTC with music just above the noise floor much of the time, although some nice peaks now and then.

You can see the fuzzy appearance of the carrier as it faded in, with some frequency shift (due to ionospheric doppler effects I think), and the sharp cutoff when they signed off.
