6925 USB unid station with bugle calls
« on: January 11, 2009, 0923 UTC »
1/10-11/08, 6925 USB.  An oddity, between 2245-0033 UTC heard long sequence of various bugle calls: Reveille, Call to Post, Marine Corps Hymn, Anchors Aweigh, Hail to the Chief, Taps, others.  Also, DTMS dialing tones; "little girl" computer voice chattering; another voice offering little girl a popsicle?  My best guess is the bugle calls came from op of Real Pirate Radio, which played Reveille on bugle at times during RPR program of rock music.

Also, audible during fades, station ID'd as "This is Godzilla Radio" ID, sounds like little kid's voice, with Godzilla roar sound fx from sci-fi movie.

I was able to hear the bugle calls here too.  Signal was very weak, just barely above the noise level and inaudible at times here in central NC.  Godzilla Radio not heard here at all.
