S9+10 in Central Ohio.
Human League - Don't you want me
Trans-European Express - Kraftwerk  (used to love those guys)
Der Kommissar - After the Fire

Listening for the email address for QSL info.

Tonight using the SDRPlay RSP2pro, RF Systems DX-10.  Signals are -74dB NF, 13dB SNR.  3:51UTC,  4/3/2022

The signal looks to be AM but is not listenable in AM mode.  USB is OK but the signal waveform is very distorted on the USB side.  Occasionally flipping to LSB and changing bandwidths randomly.

Deep, out.

DeepBlue,

Since you are using SDRuno, switch the mode to "digital" then in the AUX SP panel, drag the left filter edge (red line) to -1000 Hz then drag the right filter edge (red line) to + 15,000 Hz. That will give you the full 16 kHz bandwidth of Mix Radio International.

Sigint. I didn't realize any pirate stations were actually using digital. Very interesting.  Not a terrible sound this way.  The ability to essentially do analog and digital at the same time is interesting stuff.

Thanks for that.  Still listening for the address.  U2 = Gloria, 04:17 UTC
