UNID 4185 AM 0124 UTC 11 December 2022
« on: December 11, 2022, 0127 UTC »
Before 0124, there were a few test tones on the frequency and perhaps a carrier, on and off a few times.
I left the receiver on and left the room for a second and started to hear music,so I caught the sign on.

Muddy modulation. Might be FM, intentionally or not.
SIO 343 on Sigma's SDR in Massachusetts.

0125 - Sounds like 'Funk Town"
0129 - Hall and Oates, "I Can't Go for That"
0138 - Laura Branigan,"Self Control"

Definitely hitting the 1980s pop hits. Modulation is clearly AM and not as muddy and distorted as before but a tad bit weak.
I switched SDRs due to a local buzzy at Sigma's site.

0140 - Nine Inch Nails, "Head Like A Hole"
0145 - Dead air after a couple announcements of "Radio has changed our lives..."
0146 - I just noticed test tones out at +/- 4.5 KHz (and H2 of +/- 9 KHz). The tones were swept down to DC then...
0147 - Carrier off.

I don't STRETCH the truth.

"Every minute I spend in this room, my signal gets weaker.
Every minute Charlie squats in the bush, his signal gets stronger."
