HOT 93.3 Goes Quiet in Austin TX

HOT 93.3 FM went dark today in Austin Texas. I estimate their outage lasted 2+ hours. They went back on the air at precisely 2:45 PM 7/16/2009.
Every so often you would hear a man with a Scottish accent chant a series of numbers. It was just like a scene out of LOST. But the strange sequence of numbers also sounded like an IP address.

The IP traces to a location in Littleton Colorado. Perhaps a sister station? At any rate. The device doesn’t appear to be tied to their live broadcasts or their streaming content at HOT 93.3 FM (
