All times UTC

Captain Morgan Shortwave
6932.7 AM 0031-0144+ (though the Captain seemed to be going strong at 0200). Lots of rock and blues. Enjoyed the selections. While the music sounded great, the Captain's voice was distorted. (10/S-9, SINPO 55455, "O = 2" for the distorted voice, Hunsicker, PA)

Radio Free Euphoria
6925 AM, 0017, SIO 344. Good signal here tonight many ID's then song up in smoke then something is Spanish then Cap Ganja talking about his lineage WOW.. (Sayers, PA)

The Crystal Ship
6858.06 AM, 0336-0400. Program of seventies music, caught a partial ID at 0338 with "you're listening to a commercial free Broadcast from the Crystal Ship..", followed at 0342 Tinman by America selection. Unfortunate lots of static bursts made reception rough to copy much of the programming. S1-s2 signal at best on sloper with coils cut for 3/4 wavelength for 6925.(Kusalik-Alberta, Canada)

WEAK Radio
6930 USB, 0405-0448. Program of music with what I would call from Hillbilly/banjo to African Bango to all out Rap/Pop/punk. Noted ID's at 0409 for 'W-E-A-K Radio' by female speaker. Noted at 0424 and at 0445 as 'W-E-A-K...W-E-A-K ..WEAK Radio' by female speaker. Again best heard on sloper, s1-s2 signal, peaking to s3 levels at times. Audio wasn't pretty good (especially on the ID's), by static clashes again made copy difficult at times. (Kusalik, ALberta, Canada)
