Yeah, heard it Christmas Eve at 5PM EST, (22:00UTC? I need a dedicated UTC clock here, and Santa didn't bring me one.). Anyway, heard at work, on the truck stereo on 1710kHz, I heard Silver Bells fading in and out, then that Flight 93 TIS covered it.
From DC to light, I take a huge spectrum bite!

Good signal at the same time here in NC, way over the Hudson County NJ TIS.

at 1800, "This is the community radio network.  We now pause for station identification."  Two tones, then M anncr sounded like he mentioned "The Breeze" or "The Bridge", and "1710 kHz and 87.7 FM" or similar wording.  Splash from 1700 covered him, will check at the next TOH on the high side only.  Then the same two tones and back to the xmas mx.
