Possible ID at 12:25, to muffled to make out. S3 but above the noise. Music is strong enough to be listenable

S5 in the noise with Paul Simon.  Good sound on the xmtr though.

Pancakes and sausage links,  strong black coffee.  
Still going good at 12:35, static comes up every few seconds and tries to swamp them but Boombox is sailing above the waves.

12:55 the good ship Boombox is beginning to founder in the rising daytime static.
13:00 off abruptly.
 Thanks for the show.  Went great with breakfast.

Software / Re: Shortwave Broadcast Schedules Beta 0.0.1b3
« on: September 23, 2013, 2116 UTC »
Seems to be working well on Windows/SdrDx/NetSDR with the latest update (0.0.1b4).

 Couple questions / suggestions-
  • Which database is it using? (eibi?)
  • How will the updates occur with the next shortwave schedule? Will we have to re-download the folder or will it query EIBI online in the background.
  • I assume the entire shortwave database is stored locally in one of the Dll's?  Would it be easy to edit it? (love to take out a bunch of the crap stations I don't listen to to reduce the clutter [i.e. mil coms, Volmet]
  • It would be nice to coordinate with Ben to have a button on SdrDx to launch the program (would probably have to be loaded in specific location in the SdrDx program folder)
  • It would be nice to have an icon ( .ico ) associated with it to use on the shortcut I created for the link
  • Its "pushing" info to the radio by being able to change frequency, can it "pull" info too? I ask because if it could read what freq you are currently on, and know the time it is, it could give a constant read out of what freq you are on and what station you are listening to. (assuming the freq is in the database)  That would be a very nice feature. Tune to a frequency and have it display what the station is.   Hey! I guess it already does this, Nice!

 Thanks for the program, I realize its still in the development stage but it works well.
