Huge +30 signal here with Standell's "Dirty Water" and then into U2 "With or Without You" at 0009 UTC (10/19). Probable PRB but we'll wait for the ID...

0010 - With or With You (U2)

0014 - Some sort of country music

0018 - male vocals

0021 - PRB ID and DJ chatter (bad echo and beat effect)

0024 - Harry Smith mention

0029 - Tune of some kind.

I think that bad echo and beat effect is the mic PRB is using... it vanished when he went to the music

(Its luck I am hearing this - I've cheated death today after the bus I was on caught fire)

Adjusting the filters on the NH remote seems to get a better signal

I think I heard them from the mobile tonight. I heard someone on 6940 AM play U2's One followed by Johnny Cash's I Walk the Line. Signal wasn't great, so I never caught an ID. They'd signed off by the time I got home. SIO 212
