0257 UTC: S9+ signal with a slight distortion caused by fading.
0305 UTC: Deeper fading and the signal down to S7.

I also monitored it on 12/19 from 0157 UTC when it first came on. All Christmas music until 0528, when it just ended. Had some tough QRM from Cuba at times, but mostly dominant here in Western NY with a good signal, although it gradually deteriorated toward the end. I've been monitoring this station since 5/16/22, which is my earliest logging. I've dubbed it the "usual Sunday night nonstop easy listening music pirate" station. I've heard it nearly every Sunday night/Monday morning from about 0200-0530 UTC+/-. Never any ID. Just one old time easy listening tune after another. It's been conspicuously absent the last two holiday Sunday nights, 12/25 and 1/1, hopefully it will resume transmissions on 1/8.

Back on tonight 0248 Jan 9th, this time with more of a soft golden-oldies format rather than mostly instrumental easy listening music. Fair to good signal, well above the Cubans. It came on later than usual tonight. 0248 Puppy Love, 0250 Tonight I Fell In Love, 0252 On Broadway. As usual it's nonstop music, no ID.
