Played "Couldn't Get It Right" @ 0315z, then ID by computerized YL and into "Sign of the Gypsy Queen".
Quite a bit of ground loop hum in the audio.  Occasional quick fades that sound more like operator adjustments than propagation.
S5 signal over S2 noise floor.
ID and off @ 0322z

Extraordinarily weak most of the time on the SDR recording, other than a brief peak that revealed "Hair of the Dog" heard around 0313 followed by "Couldn't Get It Right".  

Conditions on 43 meters have been absolutely dreadful here the last week or so.

Our transmitter bit the dust last night so looks like we're gonna be off-air for awhile.  Parts ordered so hopefully we'll be back soon... :'(

Your signal slowly went away, was this due to propagation or was it your transmitter?  Like, did it slowly die or die all at once.
