Got something on this frequency, getting it in AM though here in Ohio. Using SDR, don't have an s-meter.

Can't make out enough lyrics to identify a song. Can't find the lyrics to any of these songs.


I'm getting a different station

Lots of QSB here -- sometimes pounding in, sometimes down in the mud.  Superb audio quality is very listenable even during the deep fades.

The signal started out as fair here a while ago but is improving, even though we're still in nearly full daylight out here on the West Coast. There is some interference from VHF paging bleedover and other various noises here.

I tuned in earlier (and I'm listening to it right now). I heard "Ghost Town" by The Specials. Right now, "Is There Something I Should Know" by Duran Duran.

But, the signal is fairly muddy and fading in and out.
