Motown and other oldies from about 1450 UTC -- fair signal with high static noise crashes via SW UK.
Assuming the ID on this one as reported by others on August 6th but no IDs heard, straight Motown and other oldies

Hilgennerdersiel SDR, Schweiz

Right now, music in the background.

SIO is a little better than 222.

Tune to 6526 is best so as to avoid weak sideband QRM from ute on 6520.

Band conditions on the poor side.

Now receivable on 6525 with good mod and still playing Motown, though not the most popular tracks. However, still a good listen
for those of us, including me, into Motown.

Unfortunately there are maybe 2 utes on that frequency hampering decent reception at this time.

So, SINPO is 32333 at around 1345 my time on the 8th = 0545 UTC  on the 8th.

Received via the SDR in Lanzenhausern, Schweiz.

However, if there were reasonably frequent station IDs, I feel we would be able to copy one of them.

This station seems to have been named by DXers as Station Sierra Sierra even though no-one has reported hearing an ID for Station Sierra Sierra, or in fact, no ID seems to have been heard.

Following the message from Tony D on the previous SSS post, saying Paul Suart is not involved, I think the subject line should be changed to "unid" until someone actually hears an ID from the station.
