2027 "House Of The Rising Sun" Animals   S-5
2029 "A Swinging Safari" by  Bert Kaempfert And His Orchestra aka the old Match Game theme.
0032 ID by a man ...
0033 "Afrikaan Beat" by Bert Kaempfert.
2038 "I Wish I Was Crazy Again" Johnny Cash
2041 "Spirit In The Sky" Norman Greenbaum.
2044 ID as Borderhunter Radio !  I heard him mention the phrase "The Secret Sounds earlier" which made me suspicious.
2045 "Turn Your Radio On" Ray Stevens.
2047 He He Word Wakker - Blue Grass Boogiemen.
2051 off suddenly.

There was some rapid "barber pole" fading that is NOT charcteristic of distant reception, so yes may very well have been a USA relay.

At the beginning of the clip, I can hear the op replying to Radio Coax.
Radio Coax is (was?) an alias name for a SWL that built SW receiving loops made from coaxial cable.
The remaining of the clip is unclear, and in Dutch language.

Hello All ...... just received received a nice email from Frans at Borderhunter Radio inquiring about this transmission.

He says this was not him;  it must have been someone broadcasting an old show, he does not know who.

He runs two legal FM stations now but will do Borderhunter now on then mostly Friday nights and weekends ....
