Tuned in at 2255utc on Barrington Hills IL sdr with fair/poor S7 signal with some powerline static, hear rock music that I can't ID, at 2302 siren sound, at 2308 switched to St.-Michel-des-Saints QC sdr with fair S7 to S9 signal, song: "don't you want me baby",

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

I have it with an excellent signal (54 dB SNR).  Just ID as Radio 48.  2302Z, Thanks for the show.  I am using a wideband USB mode with 10 KHz bandwidth. Female voice doing the ID.  Email address for reports given as radio48@protonmail.com.
Signal is as good as a local FM station.
Music are remixes of 80's songs (Don't you want me, the Human League).  Mixing is nicely done.
