Drove right through that county just the other day and forgot to check it out. :( I get this TIS regularly up here with the local one at the Springfield (MA) Armory. They seem to have technical difficulties more often than not and just loop that message over and over. :)

:) At least it is properly modulated unlike most of the TIS stations. While travelling last week I tuned into close to 8 of them and only 1 had decent modulation. The rest were terrible and you could tell they are updated "over the phone".

Hearing Hudson county " please check back" loop very often on the car radio parked in the driveway , mostly after 0300z .  The signal approximates the one in the video and is steady without much fading.  Im thinking now its more common here than a random dx catch

Tonight on the Radio Havana of TISs 8/28 UT i heard directions about Hurricanes and i think other disasters, also another health tip but I'm not really sure what they are refering to " ball ....dont step on it or jump on it...serious or fatal injury"???

Those are the Radio Cairo of TIS stations.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.
