Earlier at 1024 UTC Actual human being talking 'thanks to caller from London' gave out 07... phone no. Said was operating from a car and 15 (maybe 50) watts output, all on car batteries. Proper old school pirate radio. Good S9+ here. Earlier on 6262usb Irish fisherman 'Fookin this and fookin that' but not causing too much bother to Valley Wave.
Own rx and aerial. I use my ears to identify music, so titles may not always be completely accurate.

Interesting, thanks.  It will probably be nearer 50 watts. Well, if this is the case, he must be using a full size antenna, propagation conditions are not that spectacular at the moment.

The Irish fishermen on USB seem to have an Ulster accent.

It sounded like 15, and the next time 50. Audio level on the mic was great, my ears were the problem.
The documentary level sounded a tad low, now it seems a bit better.

It may well be 15 watts carrier power, possibly combined with a full sized relatively low dipole, because most of the signal seems to be going straight up and little at low angles to the horizon, as far as I can tell.
