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.

Music at 0055z. SINPO 44333. Averaging S7-S8 via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. Some static crashing and intermittent freebanders on 4183 USB., though still a decent copy with good modulation.

0102z - SINPO trending 45344. Freebanders are gone, too.
0149z - Station ID

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

0101 Powerful SIO 555 signal at W3HFU (250' V-beam) kiwi SDR in MD. No signal at my home QTH. though I also have a very high noise floor at this part of the band.
0109 confirmed my local RFI issues are preventing signal from coming through at home QTH, as N6GN kiwi SDR in Fort Collins CO has a good SIO 433 signal (they have a bit of noise themselves)
0113 "This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System" followed by swooping tones.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires.
