Started and ended with Gary Numan with a bunch of good 80s tunes in between.  Up to S9 here at times with occasional rapid fading but overall good.  It was great to catch WDOG on MW, thanks for the show tonight!

This is a weird one.  I can't really explain it but I'm sitting here in Michigan listening to Aruba air traffic control on 38.275 MHz handling flights inbound and outbound to Queen Beatrix International Airport in Aruba.  Best in FM mode but clearly an AM carrier present on the SDR waterfall.  This is being heard on several different radios in the shack (same antenna).  Aruba ATC is listed as 120.9 MHz and this is verified against the traffic that I'm hearing.  Obviously some kind of odd harmonic or mixing product that is propagating.

Antenna used is my 140 FT DKAZ terminated loop, amplified by a Wellbrook FLG100LN.

S7 over heavy static tonight:

0315 UTC: Kenny Loggins "Danger Zone"
0320 UTC: Blue Swede "Hooked On A Feeling"
0323 UTC: Off
0325 UTC: Carrier returned briefly with a very weak signal & audio.

Very weak signal barely above my noise floor with talk and then indistinguishable music.  Carrier dropped off at 2237 UTC.

I've been hearing this most nights in Michigan.  Seems to be a spur or some kind of harmonic of 1350 WLOU Louisville, KY. (soul music format) that's appearing on 1740 kHz FM.  Anyone else hearing this?

Music being heard here under and occasionally over the broken NJ TIS & Springfield Armory TIS:

0112 UTC: Song "Let it go" from Disney's Frozen.
0115 UTC: Classic IV "Spooky"
0118 UTC: Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 "Fool on the Hill"
0122 UTC: The Emotions "Best of My Love"

0132 UTC: The Association "Everything That Touches You"
0135 UTC: Dusty Springfield "The Windmills of Your Mind"
0139 UTC: Jingle ID mentioning FM frequency, "AM 1710", and "Community Radio Network"
0140 UTC: Monkees "I'm a Believer"
0142 UTC: Gloria Estefan "Don't Wanna Lose You"
0147 UTC: Neil Diamond "Brooklyn Roads"
0151 UTC: Donna Lewis "I Love You Always Forever"
0154 UTC: The Beatles "Strawberry Fields Forever"
0157 UTC: Herman's Hermits "I'm Henry the VIII, I am"
0159 UTC: Community Radio Network affiliate ID, local phone #, and time check: "It's nine o-clock" and into the National Anthem
0201 UTC: Off

S9+20 loud signal with classic Christmas music.  Off at 0353 UTC.  I never caught an ID or any announcements between the songs.  Thanks for the show!

Excellent signal and overall great audio from this no-name pirate airing old-time Christmas music right now at 0240 UTC.

Popping up at 2225 with Rush "Spirit of Radio", about S7-S8 here.

Good signal well over the Hudson TIS at times with oldies, many IDs mentioning AM 1710 & FM 87.7 and being an affiliate to the "Community Radio Network", and a local phone number given soliciting song requests.  Signed off at 0200 UTC with time pips at the TOH and ending with the National Anthem.  Good to hear this one again and not heard by me in years.

I'm hearing Queen's "Radio Ga-Ga" just above the noise @ 0048 UTC.

UNID RTTY or similar signal noted at 1900 UTC, 250 Hz wide.  Mode looks similar to NAVTEX.  Any ideas?  Fairly weak but steady however I was unable to decode it.  Any ideas who would occupy this frequency?

MW Loggings / WKYI Transmitter Spur 1730 FM 0329 UTC 6 FEB 2022

Yes, you read that right - someone with music in FM on 1730-1731 kHz @ 0329 UTC.  S9 on peaks but still a difficult copy here with music and talk.  Unsure if this is some kind of harmonic or a pirate at this point.

0333 UTC: Jimmy Buffett - Margaritaville
0345 UTC: Bon Jovi - Livin' On A Prayer
0353 UTC: Talk and announcements but I can't get a clear copy to understand any of it.  Maybe this is a relay of a commercial station?
0354 UTC: John Mellencamp - Ain't That America
0401 UTC: More talk, but not intelligible here
0405 UTC: Sounds like top of the hour network news that I would typically hear on a commercial broadcast station.
0406 UTC: Bryan Adams - Summer of '69
0418 UTC: ZZ Top - La Grange

Mystery solved (to some extent).  Music and talk matches the webstream for AM 1600 (& FM 94.1) WKYI:  https://www.my941fm.com/

Unsure if this a relay or some kind of oddball harmonic or mixing product at the transmitter.  It's being heard by DXers in Ontario and South Carolina and is not local to my receiver.
