Excellent reception

1604 Several people talking over Chuck Mangione instrumental "Feels So Good", maybe British accented group?
1612 OM's and YL talking over tail end of music, accents make comprehension a bit tough (plus wife QRM), picked out a few words
1614 New jazz instrumental tune
1616 Unid song YL singers start with "London?"
1622 Group of people talking over end of song, when they are talking the signal fades often but music is always very crisp.  Modulation problem?
1624 Signal at noise floor now
1737 Reception back to good, just out of "Crisscross" song, OM's chatting but they are tough to understand.  Music is very clear.
1741 Phone call messages (?) to Becky and Rod played, wishing them well over music.  Greeter mentions "BSJ".
1806 "Jazz" and "Mix...thanks for listening" ID's over music - Excellent reception

Can't make out the voices due to fading and accent.

1705 UTC: Sounded like a "Radio England" jingle. But clearly the station isn't in England.
1709 UTC: It's "Smooth Jazz", from an online stream.

 :o  Yeah, good Jazzy signals here in Green River Valley. The Spectro scope shows audio well beyond 4 khz, but as usual with SSB such is not always good idea. Beyond 4 khz, NOISE begins to creep in. Shotwave is NOT FM.
The mod level is great and quality as good as it gets.

my 2 cents and some pocket change.
Put it on the "blue tooth", my wife is grooving inside the bull pen. Sounds great on HUGE speakers with band limited 4 khz to keep HF noise and junk out of pass band !
Signal is now up S9 * 10, and BW to 5.5 khz, I do heard more noise, but better percussion highs.

Jazz music - believed to be a rebroadcast of BSJ-FM in England - definitely *not* direct reception from UK, as this is the loudest pirate signal I've ever encountered (at S9+40!) in upstate New York, U.S.
