2242: techno music - can't ID, seems to be very wide BW
55555, S9+10 peaks, very strong (SNR: 22 dB, S+N: -69 dBm)
2246: silent, then back on for a second on ~ 6962, back on steady again
2250: YL with ID "Radio 48" looping over bkg sounds
2252: email radio48@protonmail.com (?or ..proton.com) - sorry, my memory is really short -> song "19" - Paul Hardcastle, about Vietnam, with ID VO
2302: OM: "Welcome to Mix Radio International"

Thank you for the broadcast!
