Not much to report this evening.

Radio Oscar Zulu (ROZ) was heard on 6268 @ 1845 playing 60s music. Fair signal with good peaks. ID at 1900. SINPO 33443.

Thurs Oct 5

I saw from the SW Pirates Yahoo! group that Radio Whitesnake was due on 6300. I got in from work at 1930 (8.30pm BST), switched on the radio but no pirate signals heard on 48m apart from Mystery Radio on 6220. Earlier in the week I'd heard Zeelandia after 2000. But I guess as we go into the winter months (it definitely feels like autumn here) 48 metres will shut down in the evenings.
