WEDG The Wedge 1620 AM 1354 UTC 2 MAY 2023

WEDG has starting IDing again, about once an hour or so.   For reference, this is a local station that is likely either a pirate or a not quite compliant Part 15 station. I've been hearing them for about a decade.

They come in pretty well on the KiwiSDR here connected to the unterminated north/south Beverage antenna: http://sdr.hfunderground.com:8075/

Yesterday (May 3rd) they were just transmitting dead air, perhaps the automation software they use broke?  Perhaps they should use my Sound Byte program  ;D

As of today, May 4th at 1642 UTC, I am hearing music again.
