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.

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. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Very noise, reception at noise floor.
Jeez, I thought the last gasp of the independent movement was René Lévesque when I was in college in northern Vermont in the late 70's.

2232 Faint music
2235 OM talking to SSTV
2239 Another SSTV
