Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

Copy about S5-S6 at my location but hear the signal better about S7 on an SDR in NC.
Playing the blues (hey that could be a song!) Audio is a bit distorted on bass, like it may be over EQed on low freq.

0241 UTC     SSTV S2 image barely decoded, looked like Skull and Cross Bones on a TV.

Getting some QRM from usual pulsing beacon signal on 6944 kHz

Now using USB mode, much better copy
