1539 UTC Strong S9 carrier but modulation is low....jazzy instrumental music
1558 UTC A bit of a hum but otherwise the audio is excellent with nice bottom end
(I believe this is the AM station on 6925 earlier today that QRT'd because of the co-channel USB station)
1602 UTC Modulation is much better now!
1630 UTC Unid R&B tune...signal has dropped down a little bit and the fading is moderate now.
(Went to make some quick lunch and when I came back at 1638 UTC the station had QRT'd

Thanks for the laid back tunes this early afternoon!

Here's a link to my recording from 0106-0201 UTC:

Here's a link to the CW over the music at 0150 UTC...I isolated it and slowed it down in Audacity and it decodes to (??? WANDAWIRE)..can't decode the first few letters. "WANDAWIRE" part was confirmed last night in the Discord chat room.

Would very much appreciate a correct ID for this! An eQSL would be most welcome also!
