While the Hudson County TIS is dominant, I am hearing music on 1710 already. Presumably a pirate.
2151 Madonna "Live To Tell"
2223 OM saying "... here's one for Larry..."  Hmm, I have not heard announcements before by this pirate. Perhaps it is different station?
2226 Grass Roots "Wait A Million Years"
2228 "How Do I Live"
2242 Peter, Paul And Mary "Blowin' In The Wind"
2245 The Carpenters "The Rainbow Connection"

Hudson Co is on 1710.005, the other night the pirate was on 1710.008, and I see that carrier tonight as well. Yes, the pirate just came up, and so did 1710.008.

Also carriers on 1710.014, 1710.036, I suspect one is the Flight 93 memorial TIS, maybe the other is Springfield?

I do see a carrier on 1710.069, maybe that is W807? And another on 1710.096. Tempted to record one of these weeknights when 43m will probably be dead, and run it through Carrier Sleuth and see what pops up.
