Thanks for the program tonight JP! Haven't heard this one in it's entirety before. There has been a bit of a drought on the airwaves since New Years...much appreciated! :)

I'm getting very weak music here in USB at 0213 UTC, but the noise level is too high for copy. Maybe a man announcer at 0216 UTC, but not certain.

Glad I checked back once more before calling a night! 0112 UTC and a funky sounding dance tune with UNID male vocalist singing scat along with the ladies ;D Great audio and an S8 signal here too! Thanks JB!

From 2125-2145 UTC I've been getting a weak carrier on 11428.3ish KHZ but no detectable audio. Not sure if this is it, but I am getting hints of audio since 2145 UTC. Sadly, no copy :(
2152 UTC I'm getting music now...maybe "Sweet Child of Mine"-G'N'R?
2158 UTC CW now...maybe CZ beacon again?
2211 UTC The unmistakable sound of the bass riff on "Radar Love"-Golden Earring :)
2221 UTC CW?

I assume that the signal is bouncing somewhere else.
