Weekend Pirate Loggings: 1/17-1/19/15
X-FM: 6975, 1/17, 0317+ One of the best signals I've had from X-FM in the past year. DJ Redhat with lighter, poppier music than normal. Tons of shoutouts.
Radio Dr. Tim (relay): 6875.7, 1/17, 2227 Nice signal. Polka, including chicken dance. Very long ID jingles with IDs & e-mail address.
Old-Time Radio unid: 6770, 1/17 Noted in passing several times today. Signal seems weaker than usual.
Radio Dr. Tim (relay): 6975, 1/18, 0000+ Just checked the radio to see if anyone was on & found a good signal on 6975. Tuned in to polka & thought "Wow, Dr. Tim is back!" Sure enough, it is. Station went off at 0002, but came back on within about 30 seconds, with an even better signal.
Radio Free Whatever: 6925U, 1/18, 0041+ Nice to hear RFW back on again. Seem to be winging this one: accidentally cut a song off in the middle, so Dick Weed said "totally killed the mood of that one" & started the song over from the beginning again.
Karma unid: 6925U, 1/18, 0110+ Haven't listened to this one yet, but I was recording RFW when this came on afterward. Have 4 legible SSTV decodes, primarily about karma (hence my name for the unid). (Later) I guess this station is actually called "Karma" because Chris Smolinksi reported an eQSL from the station this morning
WRR: 6925U, 1/18, 0154+ Country music under pescadors on the frequency. Just heard a couple of IDs, but difficult to copy. Seemed to fade out
unid: 3275, 1/18, 0211+ Per HFU, this station was playing a Sherlock Holmes OTR mystery, but I tuned in and heard it playing Culture Club "Karma Kameleon." Not sure if it's the Karma unid or if the song is just happenchance
Cool AM (relay): 6950L, 1/18, 0215+ Heard some talk and music, but the station's buried in utility splatter, plus I have some noise. ID per HFU
Old-Time Radio unid: 6770, 1/18, 2200+ Excellent signal again.
The Crystal Ship: 6850, 1/19, 0022+ Excellent signal with '60s pop music, including The First Edition "Just Dropped In," Status Quo "Pictures of Matchstick Men," etc.
