Radio Pushka 6920 AM 2015 UTC 19 JAN 2022
« on: January 19, 2022, 2020 UTC »
On the Half Moon Bay SDR in CA receiver there's some music on 6920 am.  It was a spanish american sounding song.  Then I also hear it at Radio Ranch SDR in AZ.  I can't help it, there I was, minding my own business and this music was there at noon my time. It used to be a rare occurance but I haven't been listening for pirates lately. 
I hear some heavy rock, kind of sounds like Korn. 

update:
20:29 Station ID... it said something something station
Then it audaciously started playing some more music. A little like techno music but with more of a human element.
20:45 ID "Radio" something "a" something "station"
pretty good music.  Good propagation today. 
22:45 Station ID, "Radio Prisco?"

00:24 Station ID, yep clear "Radio Pushka"
Still going, this has been fun. 

I'm now picking it up on my dipole here at the domicile.  I'm using the noise reducer on my SDR and it makes it sound all weird but cuts out the harsh static.  It says S-9 on the S-meter.  Its my guess the audio is not compressed. 

Pushka sounds Russian.  Cpacibo dlya moozika maya pushka!

No problem guys! :D
It makes me happy to know that someone has heard it from home rather than from an SDR online.
About the audio, well lets just say that the Stretchyman transmitter sucks, been having issues with it not having enough power for my 1000 watt tube linear. I use stereotool.

I hear it weakly in Santa Barbara at 0730 UTC.

Radio Pushka, do you have SSB?. It travels further, although with less fidelty.

Unfortunately I don't.
I have a stretchyman transmitter and I don't have enough money to even buy a driver for my 1kw tube linear let alone a new transmitter with ssb capability.
I recently bought new tubes for it and they were sent but never arrived.

Good signal at times at one of the Half Moon SDRs -- also heard as far as Northern Kentucky SDR
Nice to have Pushka back.
