The Mighty KBC test, 9500kHz, from 0000 10/21
« on: October 21, 2012, 0027 UTC »
Anybody else hearing this?  It's loud and clear into Madison, playing rock and rock/pop from all over the last four decades or so - Offspring, the Rolling Stones, a handful of others I don't recognize.  Multiple KBC ID's and slogans throughout, one commercial for KBC Imports so far, and some chat from the DJ but not much.  Only a little of the talk's been in Dutch so far - darn!  I wish they'd play some music in Dutch or Flemish.  I'm odd, I know.  

Call it SINPO 44334, and better with headphones in.  No sign of CNR1 beneath it, either.  

Time check, e-mail address and test transmission information at 0036 (and 20 seconds, says the DJ!) :)  I know they're transmitting from Bulgaria, but that's not a Bulgarian accent, and I'm sure I heard Dutch before.  

Whoops, I was right.  That's an English, Dutch, and French multilingual ID at 0052.  :)
