« on: August 08, 2021, 0044 UTC »
Ups and downs, SINPO=24222.

042- "Überesso" by Sonny Landreth.
043- Rock tune I couldn't ID.
047- "Day After Day" by Badfinger.

I may have picked up a different operator on this same frequency and time, not sure...

UNID 6950 kHz USB 05:21 UTC 8 August 2021

S-7 playing music - no announcements so far...

Heard some announcements but too many static crashes for ID - have recorded for later review.

At 05:33 Ten Years After - "I'd Love To Change The World"

Recognized a lot of the songs / artists played tonight but never got clear ID. Recorded several breaks - will listen to those again tomorrow. Complete fade out or off-the-air at 06:35...

Hmmm, I was just about to report this one as a europirate
This is coming in best on SDRs in the UK and the only SDRs in the US I can get it in are in the southeast, and even then it's very faint, interesting.

0600 ID as Denis(?) Classic Rock

0632 Off in the middle of rolling stones song

also heard an ID several times but the fist part of it was hard to make out each time, was almost leaning towards it being Zenith Classic Rock which was last logged on the europirate forums in Feb, but I'm not so sure now since it seems that usually operated in the 39XX range.

I checked the European loggings too - lot's of poorly timed static crashes...hoping still.

Well it not being logged there doesn't mean that it's not a euro, just that no one has picked it up
Seems that not many people listen for euro pirates at this time anyhow.
That being said the ID voice was certainly American and USB seems a bit odd for a europirate.

I heard this on 6950 USB from 0130-0200+ UTC as I was closing down the radio room for the night....I clearly heard an ID by an OM for Zenith Classic Rock between songs. Yesterday's Europirate thread for this has a posting regarding the change from AM to USB during the day. Per Discord chatroom, Radio Genix moved to 6935 USB because of this.

It's a Euro. I wouldn't receive it in the afternoon if it was North America.  DJ I heard had an English accent. Zenith were using USB when they were on 39xx.
I'm not entirely sure that is originating from Zenith though.. May be a relay.
