Tuned in at 0113 on Normal IL sdr, weak signal but readable, C&W tune playing, at 0142 barely hear tune "American idiot(?)"

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
