6908.50-USB, June 17 at 0040, after finding no pirates a semihour earlier, now here`s something very strange: Nixon`s first oath of office as Vice President in 1952, beside Eisenhower and Truman, apparently authentic historic recording but edited such that he repeats certain phrases of the oath, as if to mock Nixon that decades later he might violate them. Followed by heartfelt solo of ``America the Beautiful`` by old-style operatic tenor with exaggerated enunciation, two verses; and prayer by a rabbi. Then the whole thing repeats circa 0049. I`ve had enough when another repeat starts. RTTY on 6910.0 is nicely notched out by the NRD-545. Nixon ranged S3-S6 above noise level of S3-S4. Then I check HF Underground and Freeradiocafé, but no one else has reported this. Searching HFU on the name Nixon gets lots of interesting hits, but not this, and seems no other pirates have ever been reported on exactly this frequency. Please QSL (Hauser-OK)

6925 usb, 0214-0238 Jun 13, song “You Belong to Me” followed by other fairly old pop music tunes. Heard a man announcer in English at 0233 mentioning “untitled” twice and some other chatter but no ID noted. Seemed to disappear around 0238. Poor with deep fades. (D’Angelo-PA)
