Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

It's called a multitone signal because there are multiple carriers (a carrier is sometimes called a "tone"). This can be a way to carry more information than just a single carrier.

Now at 0225 there is our "old friend" the military Link-11 signal at 6943.5 as well.

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."
