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.

0348 UTC Hearing what sounds like VFO sweep noise
0349 UTC Unid dark ambient rock music (S8 peaks and mostly solid above the noise...excellent audio)
0409 UTC Very nice S9 peak! Sorry, but I don't know the artist...
(If this is the low power rig, then propagation is kicking arse tonight!)
0413 UTC OFF...no carrier detected
Thanks for the late show!

Via a recording.

Sycko Radio never quite made it to Wyomissing.  From 0230, when the carrier appeared, until it was gone at 0412, it was "carrier, no audio, heard," "male vocal--unusable," "faint music," and, once, "guitar."  The signal was only about 16 dB above the noise, about 10 dB shy of being usable here.  Maybe next time.
