2002 UTC "Popcorn"-Crazy Frog with a strapping S9+ signal here! Superb audio too!
2005 UTC "Dirty Frog"-Crazy Frog
2008 UTC OFF
If that was a test, it worked very nicely!  :)
2015 UTC Back up again but signal strength is weaker and with RTTY QRM
(Playing a song I've heard several times in 2015 but no ID on the station or the song...hmmm)
This song gives a different ID every time I shazam it
2029 UTC "U.N.I.T.Y."-Queen Latifah/"Let's Stick Together"-Bryan Ferry
2033 UTC "Get Together"-Youngbloods
2037 UTC "Why Can't We Be Friends"-War
2041 UTC "You've Got a Friend"-Carole King (Signal is fading in and out of the noise floor now with S3 peaks and RTTY QRM)
2045 UTC OFF
