Tuned in at 0410, weak/poor under moderate storm static, muffled bass heavy audio, long soft rock/pop tunes in unid language, off at 0430 without announcement, RF-4900 & dipole.
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

I've heard a similar station in that region but awhile back, early last winter. I never got an id. I thought it was a South American or African broadcaster running a little high of 3885, but who knows? It was much too early for New Guinea or the Indonesians.

Keep us all posted if you hear it again and I'll try to do the same.
