Poor, dance music, announcements sound European but I doubt if it is. Thanks to everybody for the ID of the station. Off at 0131utc.

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

Barely audible in the Chicagoland area.  Can hear it, but that's about it.

S7 and very noisy, difficult to pick out of the noise.  Sounds like a synthesizer in the background, also some CW in the background.  Maybe an ID at 0108Z ?
