Listening via the NA5B SDR near D.C. ...

2328 UTC: "The Madding Crowd" by Killing Joke (RIP Geordie Walker)
2330 UTC: YL voice with ID and brief information about Geordie Walker's death, then "Ecstasy" by Killing Joke
2337 UTC: SSTV transmission
2341 UTC: YL voice with ID, info about honoring Geordie Walker, and a shout-out to HFU posters
2342 UTC: "America (extended mix)" by Killing Joke
2348 UTC: "Change (Re-evolution mix)" by Killing Joke
2352 UTC: OM voice telling HFU posters that an SSTV was coming up - followed by the SSTV transmission. I was able to partially decode the SSTV's guitar image and reference to Geordie Walker at the bottom.
2357 UTC: YL announcement again, and again thanking HFU members for logging the station
2358 UTC: "Seeing Red" by Killing Joke
0003 UTC: "Loose Cannon" by Killing Joke
0008 UTC: "Implant" by Killing Joke
0013 UTC: YL announcement repeated two times, then "New Cold War" by Killing Joke
0022 UTC: SSTV transmission. I checked out West here and found maybe a hint of this signal via the Northern Utah SDR, but still nothing out here near Seattle.
0026 UTC: YL announcement, then "War on Freedom" by Killing Joke

Thanks for playing Killing Joke music today, Locomotive Radio! I discovered this band pretty late, but I'm a fan, even of their latest releases of the past few years.

Some of the earlier comments in this thread indicate that they went off the air a few hours ago but perhaps not or they went back on again.

I started to type this at 0015 UTC and enough people interrupted me that I'm just getting back here at 0144 UTC.

0037 - YL announcement 2x: ID and celebrating the life of ________. Etc.
0144 - Checked back and TX is off.
I don't STRETCH the truth.
