Music at 2131z into DJDW commentary. SINPO 35343. ~S5 signal via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical.

2152z - ID as "Radio Free Whatever"
2205z - Propagation improving allowing for wider receiving bandwidth. ~S7 signal.
2223z - ~S8 pesky on 6960lsb. Back to narrower audio here.
2246z - Further band improvement. SINPO 45444.  S8+ signal. Good modulation.

Thanks for the broadcast and shout-out! :)

21:40 UTC - Good readable with swishy audio. Seeing some audio up to +/- 5 kHz wide;
21:46 UTC - Station ID: Radio Free Whatever followed by shout-out to HFU listeners;
21:48 UTC - Signal is fading out and swishy audio is getting worst.
