About S6 to S7, modulation seems low. Just tuned in, hearing some music.
WKIL as per Ragnar on #pirateradio IRC.

2245 On with ID repeated several times by OM in a low voice  --  WARN?  --  WARM? -- WAIM?   hard to make out
        Into mellow music
2257 ID rptd sev times - does sound now like WKIsomething - then off
       repeated listenings to the recording aren't definitive here

S9+5, lotsa QSB, pretty good audio here

Thanks!

And thanks Andrew and Ragnar for the ID!

I had a good signal here that was especially clean for the ID (a rarity) @QRT. It's WKIL.

Thanks for the brief program (I only heard about 3:30)

I have a recording if the op's interested. Please QSL...
