02:24 UTC - Loud and clear with music;
02:27 UTC - History of WJAN; using a horizontally polarized loop antenna and a small transmitter running about 100 watts;
02:30 UTC - Lowered the power then brought it back up for a test; no issues;
02:31 UTC - WJAN signing off for now.

And to answer your question, yes, I can hear you loud and clear at S+10. A little feed back from the amplifier during the live microphone part.

Just caught the last minute. Excellent signal the whole time. Was waiting for him to turn the transmitter power down. I guess he did, but it sounded the same here

Looks like he is back on the air

Great reception asking listeners about audio quality, and simply, "WJAN, bye!", and off at 03:09 UTC....Walt in Masset, BC
And he's back, briefly when rechecking at 03:13 with the Beach Boys, and again signing off with 2 pips.  Thanks for the show, albeit short for me!  I like your music selection, though, with CCR and the Beach Boys heard.
