Tough copy here tonight, SINPO=14211

Can't ID tunes so far, but can make out faint signal.

126- Can recognize melody of "Horse With No Name" by America.

130- Heard vocals, presumably an ID.
131- "I'm Afraid of Americans" by David Bowie, super faint.

01:14 UTC - Weak but readable. I am currently at the 49th parallel and can receive the signal using my Belka-DX and the telescopic antenna. All told, great long distance.
