Tuned in at 0244 utc on Brookfield WI sdr with fair/good S9+10 to S9+20 signal, good modulation, technopop tunes some with women singing, at 0249 ID as Sternradio by male and female, on waterfall looks like professional audio bandwidth limiter in use with very sharp cutoff, at 0315 played "national anthem" then said "we will never surrender" then record scratch then off.

Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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 strong reception into Masset, BC but modulation seems off.  Generally low, and harsh to my ears.
03:00  Set You Free (Cryo Edit) by Fiction 8
03:04  Machine voice about transmitter having technical problems.  "Please write" or something like that.
03:05  Operating Tracks by Front 242  Noted a few very brief transmitter breaks.

Bitte warten, Sternradio hat technische Schwierigkeiten. Der Sender raucht. Rauchen wird dich töten.
