Dit Dah Radio
6925U 4/25 2259-2320 A station that makes all its announcement using
manual Morse (CW). The songs played have the words dit and dah in the
lyrics. Fair/Good signal (Majewski CT)
6925u 4/26/8 2153 sio333, some noise and deep fades, CW id "dit dah dit dah your CW pirate station", other CW that I didn't copy, then music, CW id as "dit dah radio", "how about another song", more music, "reports to frn are appreciated", off at 22:19 with "73" (Fansome PA)

Moonshine Radio.
6925U 4/26-27 2347-0004 English. Very nice music from the 80s and 90s. YL announcer, Moonshine, and OM announcer, Lawnmower, with a parody of two pirate ops with similar names. Nice show. S5/F-G. (Wood, TN)
6925U 4/26 2340-2350 4/26/08 SIO=242/141. Apparent new stn; the stn name is possibly a pun on Sunshine R. Format of classic rock mx. Subject to significant fading, and the 2350 time is a fade-out, not necessarily a QRT. (Zeller-OH)

MAC Shortwave
6850AM 5/1 2359-0126(faded out) Excellent signal (S9+20) An "Ultraman" show of very early Beatles songs. Ultraman was saying hi to people, who email in to the show. Did a good version of "Heh Joe". A great show. (Majewski CT)
6851.6AM 5/02 0229 - 0236* 555 (Fluctuating from S-9 to S-+20db over.) Ultraman Show, with UNID mx, closed transmission with USA National
Anthem off with laughter at 0236. (Michaels, Unknown)

Northwoods Radio
6925U 4/25 234--0130 Good signal. The show started with the Loon call id. The show played the music of the group "Bomb" with an interview with a member, Mike Dean. (Majewski CT)
6925U 4/27 0109-0111 Good signal. Repeat of last night show on the group Bomb and the interview with Mike Dean. Ended with 73 in CW. (Majewski CT)

The Wave
6925u 4/29 22:40 sio222, very noisy, via net remote-controlled radio in central FL, "Sail On Sailor", "Ride Captain Ride", "Southern Cross"
(Fansome PA)

6925u 4/26 2258-2329 English. Music by Arlo Guthrie, Tom Tom Club, The Amphibians and others. Several IDs as “You’re listening to WAIR-All Indie (or India) Radio.” Either would fit the bx. Gave defunct mail drop addy of POB 69, Elkhorn NE 68022, USA. Poor. (Wood, TN).

WMPR (tenative)
6925 4/27 0144 Pirate playing techno music generally associated with WMPR, but no ID heard. Fair. (Wood, TN)

Wolverine Radio
6925U 4/26 *0109-0204* SIO=242/232-. Prgm of mainly mellow rock/folk including Stevie Wonder and Joni Mitchell's Coyote. A narrative reading by an OM at the close. I still think that their IDs sound like "Long Range R.," but I go along with the majority nowadays, and I'll call them Wolverine R. like everybody else. No addr ancd. (Zeller-OH)

6955AM 4/26 2056-2123 Weak/Poor signal This was a Jimmy Buffet concert.
I figured it out while "Cheeseburger in Paradise" was played. No id was
given. (Majewski CT)

6925AM 4/27 0104-0125 Weak/Poor signal. A show of traditional music like "Amazing Grace". No id was copied. Maybe Radio Appalachia. (Majewski CT)

6925 4/27 0110-0125+. English. Unid pirate playing “Roots” and “
Americana” music including “Ain’t No Bugs on Me,” and “Erie Canal.” Lost
in static at 0125. Poor. (Wood, TN)

6925U 4/27 0005-0012 SIO=141. Came on after I lost the Moonshine R.
signal. "Teenage Wasteland" by the Who and other rock. At 0010 they gave an ID as R. ?, with the question mark not copied by me. Took a deep fade at 0012. (Zeller-OH)

6925u 4/30 00:01 sio434, big band music, Dagwood and Blondie, signoff
with "This is the Armed Forces Radio Network" (Fansome, using his own radio in PA)

6925U 5/2 2341-2353 A show of rock music, Kid Rock (I wana be a rock star), Carlyn Simon (Chelsea Morning), CSN&Y (Cinnimon Girl) and Men without hats (Safety Dance). Missed the ID. Good Signal (Majewski CT)
