HORIZON FM 6245 KHZ AM MARCH 9, 2014
« on: March 10, 2014, 0052 UTC »
Had audio here as early as 2200 UTC...signal picked up really well over the next 45 minutes. S4 with deep fades at 2243 with cover of "Baby I Love Your Way"...op was quite chatty between songs...still hearing this when I tuned away at 2317 UTC.
{Listened back on the tape, and caught an ID at 2259 UTC. Sounded like News at 2300 UTC}
0050 UTC Still going strong here between fades
{Is this from Tenerife, the UK, or some kind of relay? I remember reading that the OP was going to up power at some point}
(updated March 11 at 0230 UTC. I straightened out the times. I forgot about the EDT to EST change when I originally posted!)

Very nice S8 signal here with minor fading at 0055 UTC. Playing Daft Punk "One More Time". Clear Horizon FM ID after, and then into another song I don't recognize.
