I wonder if it's a guy transmitting to his Zenith console in the hallway? Also, you should be able to shoot an azimuth to it with any ambc portable with a ferret bar antenna.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

Presumed pirate WXLV faded in again, playing country music, around 1900z.

I've been hearing country music since tune in around 1500z, just played Johnny Cash a few minutes ago, SIO 433 signal, I presume this is the pirate again, waiting for an ID.
Yes, an ID at 1526.
