11580 PIRATE Radio Northern Ireland, 0130, signed on with the "Lincolnshire Poacher," heard a clear "Northern Ireland," and possibly an address. Difficult to hear much else because of the jamming on this frequency aimed at earlier WRMI programs and still going. Signal was fair, but because of the jamming pretty much unintelligible. (Aug. 28, 2016) Earlier on 15770 from 2054 t/in until 2114 t/out had something unid on this freq. RNI scheduled for 2100 s/on, but signal too weak to determine if this was it. Was best in LSB. Appeared to be EG with some mx. (XM)
