240- Still hearing faint music and vocals.

Modern instrumental music still going strong, with nice up-fades.

QSLs Received / Ball Smacker Radio eQSL 24 July 2021
« on: July 24, 2021, 0207 UTC »
Thanks to BSR for this eQSL from tonight's broadcast. -MP

Apologies if this is something obvious and/or already discussed, but tonight I stumbled upon broadcasting in English on 450 AM. Listening between 336 and 410 UTC, the signal intermittently improved, and I clearly IDed the program content as live Bloomberg Radio, comparing it to the Bloomberg internet stream and hearing clear IDs on 450 khz. The contents of the transmission ran about 34 to 35 seconds ahead of what was on the internet official stream for Bloomberg Radio. News, interviews, weather, sports, ads (for NY and NJ businesses mostly). Any thoughts on the reason for this signal here?

SINPO=34333, very solid signal tonight (some static crashes).

305- "The Valley Runs Low" by Joe Bonamassa.
308- OM announcer in French.
309- "Perfect Circle" by Katie Melua. <<Now SINPO=24222>>
