Yes you read the frequency right, a pirate on 27605 KHz USB. Tuning around the amazing 11m conditions today, stumbled upon American accented DJ playing a variety of music. Unlike the usual 11m channel jammers, this is a quiet freeband frequency with no other activity and seems like a typical SW pirate show. VERY nice S9 signal in the Boston burbs and good audio.

2111 - OM announcer into King Tubby
2113 - This Is My Last Affair, The Meters
2116 - OM announcer again with no apparent ID talking about music, and then into Afro-Blue by Abbey Lincoln
2119 - Afro Blue, John Coltrane
2130 - ID again, running through the songs

It seems that the operator of the transmitter is playing some kind of online stream or archived radio show, and he's muting or potting down the original IDs when they are announced.

2111 Solid here, SIO 555
2115 Possibly ID'd as The Last Exit with announcer Wade Pete. But I'll need to hear another ID or two.
2130 Some muted IDs, but I picked out enough info, like the mention of the program name as Last Exit and the announcer as Wade T, to do some web searching and turned up this: https://www.wcsufm.org/show/last-exit-w-wade-t
2144 Signal back again after fading out a few minutes ago

S7, SIO 433, jazziness.
2124 - Cool horn solo.
2130 - OM spkg about Afro Blue, just about to ID and CUT OUT!  ;D
2131 - "The Last Exit" ...ID? Sounds like maybe a rebroadcast of something.
2133 - Faded into nothing. No copy.

Weird. Cool. Thanks op!

I'm hearing only a faint SS speaking OM on that frequency. The 11m band is amazing today.

21:49 UTC - Loud and clear with piano jazz music. Considerable audio product into the LSB;
21:57 UTC - Suddenly went off the air. Perhaps that last musical transition was too wide. The bandwidth exceeded 8 kHz.
21:58 UTC - Station ID: "W? Radio"

Music just above my very low noise floor, but very difficult to make out a melody. I'll call it SIO 151 at 2150z.
