Tuned in at 0134 utc on Ashland MA sdr with fair S9 signal and some static crashes, song: "number one", at 0153 song: "eight miles high", at 0204 the title song from a James Bond movie(?), at 0211 "low spark of high heel boys",

"High Hopes" at 0131z into more music. SINPO 44333 via USB ECSS. Averaging ~S8 with some higher peaks via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. Moderate static crashing.

Audio frequency response is fine, but modulation seems a little low.

Sounds like modulation perhaps increased when checking at 0148z.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)
