Thanks.  It all depends on how well your radio sounds.  Some radios canít hear the difference. It also depends on how well your hearing is.

Just fading up to audible levels here at 0050 UTC as we move past sunset out here near Seattle.

0057 UTC: The Morse code playing over the music for a moment really was audible; overall signal is still just barely above the noise here.
