Radio GSV (Good Ship Venus)

Radio GSV (Good Ship Venus)*, transmitting from Scotland, was logged on 10 August 2014. Lively male DJ speaking at length between songs, asking for reception reports, mentioning "Radio GSV" and "shortwave on 6.265" from 20.18 to 21.00 UTC. Songs included  "Magic" by Pilot, a tune by U2, ELO and others. Reception on 6.265 kHz (SINPO) was 24321 -- weak to poor, barely audible, severe atmospheric noise and fading...essentially very noisy!
Reception report was emailed on the same day to Radio GSV. Lorraine at GSV emailed this eQSL and artwork from GSV, stating: "Greetings from The Good Ship Venus Radio GSV and thank you for the reception report . Yes, you heard Radio GSV playing a recording from WMR weekend music radio . Greetings from Scotland."
