Getting it here in Denver - very weak to the point of almost being indistinct, but you can't miss Grace Slick's voice. (White Rabbit @ 00:18.)

Signal better at 00:27 - Venus.

6876 AM, 0115z: Got home late, just in time to catch sign-off IDs and theme songs for TCS.  Juliana Montana "pants" ID, Quint's song, Ramones "Airwaves". Tough copy through heavy local RFI and t-storm crashes.  Outdoors with barefoot Sony 2010 portable in AM sync.

SDR recording catch. S9+20 from sign on until 0005z when the band went long, and it dropped to just barely audible (although I could still hear music).
Came back at 0019z during "White Rabbit", strong until it suddenly dropped out again at 0032.
Back again at 0049 for a minute or so, dropped out, then back at 0052 and stayed until 0120 sign off.

Here's quick graph I made of the signal strength, you can see the background noise level before and after the broadcast, as well as the various fade outs and ins:

^ Nice. Explains why I could hear it at those times. Pirate transmissions are hard to come by where I am, especially with what I'm currently using.
