 Testing the AM Stereo capability on a newly converted McIntosh MR7084 tuner with an added Meduci AM Stereo decoder board for DX AM Stereo listening, but heard this gospel music station fade-in (Monophonically.). I wasn't able to RX this on my Awia AM Stereo walkman, but the McIntosh heard it, and with great audio quality. Wasn't able to catch any ID, or announcements. I might try to catch this on the truck's stereo later. It didn't even light up any of the tuner's 6 segment LED signal strength meter, but still good S/N Ratio. Nice test, but what was that?
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

Possibly Radio Lo Que Tienes, a religious pirate known to haunt that frequency. I've not copied them myself but your description seems to jibe with what I've read about them. Was it in Spanish?

It sure sounds like them. When I'm able to hear them they're always in the clear and sound good.
