2203 "Yellow Rose Of Texas", SIO 322
2206 OM talking, sounds like this is the parody of Texas SW

An eQSL would be greatly appreciated  ;D

2027 "Light My Fire" cover, SIO 433, good signal but a bit of static.
2036 ID, shout outs

This was posted in Software, but is applicable to SDRs overall: https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/topic,73205.0.html

New one for me, was testing some changes to Carrier Sleuth and I noticed another station faded in on top of WTTM from NJ, clear TOH ID.

They are on 1680.018 kHz, vs 1679.999 kHz for WTTM.

I moved the AFE822x SDR as far from the HVAC duct as I could, and ran a circa 24 hour recording again. Much better results!
You can see stations fade in and out around sunset and sunrise, and the overall noise level go up.

BTW, these extended waterfalls are generated with my Carrier Sleuth program for Windows and macOS, and work with SDR I/Q recording files from most popular SDR programs.
If you are a serious MW DXer, you need Carrier Sleuth  :)  Download a copy here https://www.blackcatsystems.com/software/medium_wave_carrier_display_app.html

Apparently I need to relocate the AFE822x SDR, right now it is near one of the HVAC air vents. You can see the systematic drift of carrier frequencies from an overnight recording, most likely due to temperature changes affecting the ADC clock frequency.

SDR recording catch

2334 Signed on directly into music, Jethro Tull per Shazam. SIO 433
2336 Jethro Tull "To Cry You A Song"
2347 "Dharma For One". There may have been an OM speaking between songs, but the level was too low, if so.
0001 "We Used To Know"
0009 "For A Thousand Mothers"
0016 "You've been listening to the greatest Jethro Tull on Not .... Radio... Goodnight".
0017 Off

Sorry I could not decipher your ID. Thanks for the Jethro Tull music!  Any chance of an eQSL?  ;D

Heard from 0038-0101 UTC on the SDR recording. It could have been on much earlier as I had trace audio, but nothing useable.
