0043 - Hearing a fair-weak, but definite het here in NE MA, but no audio at all.

0036 - Heard Dire Straits, a bluesy, slide guitar-oriented song, and at 0111, a station ID followed by Peter Frampton's Do You Feel Like We do? Very good signal with moderate noise, no interference, and good audio, although noise sometimes degrades the audio a little bit. Still the signal is getting out well. SINPO so far= 45343.
0125 - CCR: I Heard it Through the HFU, I mean the Grapevine

Before I retired, on my drive from north of Boston to Quincy (just south/southeast of Boston), I used to pick up a few FM pirates while sitting in traffic. I remember 87.7 and there was a Hatian pirate in there somewhere, so not suprised by this article.

Still using my trusty (32 years and still going) Drake R-8, with a 60-ft longwire antenna.

0041 - Pounding in here with guitar-oriented music. Great signal, all-around.
0047 - Abruptly to next song. Horns, and swing/Big Band music.
0056 - Drums and percussion into more classic jazz. Bebop vocals with YL vocalist.
0104 - Female announcer "You're listening to the sound of international radio on shortwave. You're listening to Mix Radio International. This was immediately followed up by the same femmale announcer: "When you hear The Yellow Rose of Texas, you are listening to Texas Radio Shortwave." Email announced as texasradioshortwave@protonmail.com. Jazz music with a female vocalist followed. Lengthy instrumental jazz from there.
(I'll be sending a report to you guys tomorrow!)
(Still a strong SINPO=55444 signal.)
0121 - Female announcer mentioning The Yeallow Rose of Texas, etc., and giving info for QSLs (HFU or a report to their email; SDR accepted; must include details and SINPO). Instrumental jazz follows.
0138 IDs for Mix Radio by amle announcer and Texas Radio Shortwave by a female announcer. Then, an upbeat Yellow Rose of Texas.

0044 - Fair into my locale. Yeah Man mentioned War and Spill the Wine. Acknowledging HFU reports.
0046 - The Rolling Stones: Satisfaction.
(Good signal, but noise level is negatively impacting the audio. Mostly steady, without notable fades.)
0050 - The Beach Boys: Good Vibrations
0054 - "We're getting a lot of reports on the HFU tonight. It's time for some Santana." Black Magic Woman follows.
(Signal is overcoming the noise level and is a lot more audible. Quite strong tonight.)
0100 - Jingle, then CCR: Suzie Q
0106 - (Back after stepping away) The Association (?): My Beautiful Balloon
0108 - The Turtles: Happy Together
0111 - "The Turtles...a big hit for them." The Monkees: Daydream Believer followed.
0115 - Dedicated to the One I Love.
0117 - Brief announcement by Yeah Man, then "How Can I Be Sure."

Thanks for the Broadcast, Yeah Man!

0127 - Shoutouts from The x-Ambassordors, Weezer, and Paul McCartney, and others, tehn, a station ID. More electronica followed.

0134 - Red Hot Chili Peppers heard over electronica mx.
0142 - Still going strong with electronica and OM vocals.

0043 - Very strong, clean signal here in NE MA. It is a man telling a story, based in London. OM has an English accent. "I hadn't seen him for a couple of months..." "Watson!"

2112 - AM noise makes it useless, but I can barely pick up the broadcast on USB. Anitmated DJ (Paul Walker, I presume) and music. Can make out a word here and there. USB has less noise, and the signal strength is fair, with no interference.
