0320 S/on with spacey music
0323 unid rock song
0326 ID by OM over music given several times.  It was very hard to hear, but might be Free Radio <something>?  Ment "pirate radio"
0329 unid rock
0332 talk over music
0342 Pretty sure I heard a Captain Ron Shortwave ID, and off

Weak and at the noise; props have been brutal tonight.
Thanks Captain Ron!

Following at 0349:

"Propagation, Propagation, Propagation, 6925 USB, Testing 1,2,3, etc"
About S7 on S6 noise, so more audible here.

I had this too, SIO 323 into southern Wisconsin.  Good grief but propogation is iffy tonight!  Static and local RFI, oof!  Harder rock at tune-in, then what sounded like multiple ID's - shortwave radio something, pirate radio something, free radio, and shouty bits following on.  Couldn't make those out.  Spacey music at tune-out.  Was this Captain Ron?

SDR recording catch, 0319z sign on with music. Mentions of pirate radio by OM over song at 0326, with a clear ID at 0329. Fair to good by the end of the broadcast at 0342z, off with an ID. Thanks for the show, Captain Ron!
