Instrumental electric guitar music since 0055 or so.
Signal S9 into Washington D.C. area
ID at 0106 but did not copy.
Another ID at 0109, heavily accented male voice (French?), did not copy.
Another incomprehensible ID at 0127.
0144 ________ Head Radio? followed by SSTV tx that will hopefully solve the mystery...
Appears to be gone at 0200

Thanks for a great show!

Originally SINPO=13131, but 34333 by 131.

125- Rock music way under the noise.
127- YL (synth?) briefly talking, I believe, then music resumes (instrumental with pronounced electric guitar riffs and drum beats).
131- Signal improved and hearing that music since 127 is "Leave The Light On" by Buckethead.
132- YL synth voice IDs "Radio______ Radio." Maybe WENO?
132- "The Coats of Claude" by Buckethead. (at 137 and 141, YL synth voice IDs something "Radio" over song).
144- SSTV.

Great music and great signal (central New York state) - but can't for the life of me understand the ID's - each time it sounds like a completely different ID (in the form "X Radio").

Been listening on and off since it first appeared. Big signal here, with a -20 to -30 Hz offset that's typical of Skippy Radio.

Listening to my recording of the broadcast and the ID at 0106 is clearly "M D K 2 Radio"

I also heard that "MKD2 Radio" ID - but I also got a nice clear decode of the Cheesehead Radio SSTV image - but prior to that, I heard several IDs (in the form "X Radio") that were all completely different from each other(!)
