0045 UTC OM with ID sounding like Mungano Radio, into unid music (signal is mostly buried in the noise here)
(Turned on the recorder at 0047ish UTC)
0050 UTC Signal rose up above the noise for a bit......Shazam says "Marry You"-Diamond Platnumz featuring Ne-Yo (0053 UTC...above the noise now but barely)
0054 UTC OM said something but nada on the copy
0056 UTC "Photo"-Karan Sehmbi & DJ SFM

Thanks for the broadcast! Wish I could hear it better....here's the best 20 minutes of my recording from 0047-0107 UTC....faint ID by OM about 7 minutes into the recording.

Tuned in at 0048utc, very weak fading in & out under low noise level, hear bits of music,
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Like most others, music faintly audible just under the noise.

At 019 the tune had a distinctly pronounced and fast beat, and sounded almost techno.
All reception direct-- From my location, radio and antenna.
QTH New Hampshire (70 miles north of Boston).
Tecsun S-8800 and Kenwood R-2000, with about 135 feet of wire thrown up in the trees.
eQSLs most appreciated to molvaniapoacher@gmail.com.

Tuned in just after 0100. A lot of international dance music with a big beat. I had a bit of a hetrodyne around the freq, so I tuned in AM sync, which probably wasn't the best way to go. The sync locked & it eliminated the het, but the audio sounded pretty tinny this way  :)  This is not a place I'd typically check for pirates, but it's great to hear one here
