Undercover Radio 1720 AM 0054 UTC 7 Feb
« on: February 08, 2022, 0059 UTC »
I saw the carrier pop and then came on with an instrumental music piece (Modern concert?). Poor to fair signal
0100Z, ID as Undercover Radio, with male voice saying Don't let them see us or tell them what we were doing.
0104Z, Pirate Radio broadcasting from the middle of nowhere.  Propagation is not as good as last night, but seems to getting better.
0110Z, Iron Man by Black Sabbath, a tune that I know.  Experimental YouLoop is better than the wire!
0114Z, ID with email, into Hells Bells AC/DC
0123Z, OZZY!
0127Z, Motorhead Ace of Spades
0130Z, ID into Crazy Train.  Show is the same as last night. I wonder if Throwback 90s is next in line.
0151Z, Off the air, Carrier gone.  That was a great show.

0111 - Iron Man?! S-7, mostly heavy QRN, 222, but it's there. I hear it, below the noise.
0112 - Just swelled up, nice! Iron Man for sure.
           Nice, my first ever MW pirate!
0114 - A clear Undercover Radio ID, bell tolling, Hells Bells AC-DC, getting brief windows of 333
0019 - Judas Priest's Hell Bent For Leather
0122 - Sweet Leaf Sabbath. Hell yeah.
0127 - Ace of Freakin' Spades! Motorhead
0130 - ID w/ email addy given into Crazy Train. Still swinging 322-333. Pain in the arse QRN/QSB.
0133 - When the noise clears the audio is great!
0135 - "...Don't tell them what we are doing" into...Don't recognize it. DIO?
           Okay that's freakin' DIO ;D, I just don't know the song.
           I'm gonna guess Last In Line?
0140 - "Don't let them see us. Don't tell them what we are doing"
0141 - Beautiful clearing in the noise. (jinxed) Damn, don't recognize artist/song.
           Cool whatever it is. Maybe Rainbow?
0145 - \m/ \m/
0146 - YL starting Undercover Radio's s/off w/ email addy, song continues, S-8, 333
0149 - Big fade, (of course) 322
0150 - Off.

THANK YOU, UNDERCOVER RADIO!
