I recognize Jimi Hendrix "Fire" at 2148 UTC.  Audio is not quite right.  S7 carrier in NY, but low audio.  Sounds like audio is improving.  Now with "Let Love Rule" at 2154 UTC.  Propagation is also causing the signal to fade up and down.  "Free Ride" at 2200 UTC.  "She's So Sharp" at 2210 UTC.

Weak and could barely tell anything was there for about five min. Then had a really nice fade up of "Free Ride" by Edgar Winter at 2202.
Thanks!
