ION RADIO ASCII HEX 6929.9 AM 1518 UTC 13 MAR 2022
« on: March 13, 2022, 1518 UTC »
1518 UTC Orchestral Music (Nice S7 signal well above the noise with light fades)
1521 UTC OM giving 2 digit numbers, into Unid bluesy bottle neck guitar song OM singer
1526 UTC OM giving 2 digit numbers, into "Hand Jive"-unid artist
1530 UTC OM giving 2 digit numbers, into unid music (signal dropped down to S3 with quick fades)
1532 UTC Poor copy now, then suddenly jumped back up to S7
1534 UTC OM giving 2 digit numbers, into unid music (back to the rapid fading making copy difficult)
1539 UTC Bells tolling?
1540 UTC OFF

Listening back on my recording, I believe the OM was saying "49, 4F, 4E, 20, 52, 41, 44, 49, 4F". Nothing comes to mind with that sequence....thanks for another pirate mystery! Guess I need to brush up on my ASCII code....Perhaps we have ION RADIO? Not sure if the 20 is a space...

Yes, looks like ASCII, and yes, 20 hex is an ASCII space.
