Report to vaultshortwave [at] gmail [dot] com was returned as "undeliverable".  Does anyone have the current e-mail address?

All I could ID was the Clash "Police On My Back" at 0042, followed by talk by OM anncr about antenna issues, and something about frequencies.  Into UNID punk & new wave music.  Lots of QRN and slightly drifty, making copy difficult.  Possible ID at 0057.  At 0112, anncr gave some announcements mentioning a change in frequency.  It sounded like a change to either "5060".  Mentioned that it was a "Test Broadcast"

PSE QSL & QTH info below


Solid S-7, here in N. Alabama. 

0120 - ID of Blackstar, with mention of frequencies, followed by Bowie's "Fashion" & "Modern Love".  Another "Blackstar ID at 0129, followed by Bowie's "China Girl".  Followed by more Bowie songs (seemed to be truncated versions), which were not recognizable, to me.  I thought I heard another "Blackstar Radio" ID at 0138, followed by another UNID Bowie song..

Excellent signal into N. Alabama this evening.  0120-0220, and still going.  "Channel Z" by B-52s, "Mexico" by James Taylor, UNID Little Feat song, and more.  Looking for requests on HFU, with plenty of IDs w/ frequency.  Numerous announcements mentioned Wolverine Radio.  Announcer sez he's getting pretty wasted and till tearing it up with a solid S-8 at 0225 w/ Santana, followed "Peg" by Steely Dan.  Thank you for the shout-out, heard at 0234 !    PSE QSL.

PSE QSL and QTH info in my signature line.

S6 and stable signal.  With some sort of Native American chant song.  ID by woman w/ gmail address at 2309, into AC/DC's "Sink The Pink", Hank Williams Jr. "Kaw-Liga".  Man w/ announcements mentioning "some more AC/DC", then taking phone calls at 2319.  Some sort of commercial at 2320 mentioning "break away, today!" and 1-800 #.  ID, snippet of of "Hells Bells", time check of "4 minutes before 9 o'clock", snippet of AC/DC "Shot Down In Flames", then talk by OM announcer w/ phone number.  Began to fade soon after, but did continue to hear music and talk, and a fairly-clear "Brockett 99 Shortwave" ID by female announce at around 2332 w/ gmail address.  A bit later, portion of the song "Cherokee People".

The time checks don't match.  A relay of an old program ?
