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.

KRAP, not at all sounding like crap.  ;) Very nice 11 KHz, well modulated audio. Nice stuff on the N1NTE SDR.

0030: The Vogues, Five O'clock World
0032: John Fogerty, Rockin' All Over the World
0037: Sign off announcement, with 75m AM lingo about "The pubes in the transmitter". Into Suzie Quattro.
0041: PA off, but driver is still on? Still a carrier about 10-15 dB below what it was.
0044: Male and female spoken speech.
0046: Ozzie accented. Must be a different station but almost the same frequency as KRAP, about 3 Hz up.

I don't STRETCH the truth.
