Signal very clear here for the entire broadcast!
2328 UTC OM with ID "This is W-F-D-R...W-F-D-R...Merry Christmas", then OFF

Thanks for the repeat broadcast on 6920U! Very enjoyable hearing this again....believe I heard it last year also! Just did a search and last years was a different Christmas tree lighting year!

Here's a couple interesting links about the speech and that evening back in 1941.
