S6 with some fading @ 0321z.  Noise at S3. Thanked someone for report.  Announcer audio is good.  Music seems a little light/lower.  Clear ID @ 0322z and 'sorry about the echo'.

The usual crushing RTN signal into north Canada tonight. Modulation levels seem fine here. Heard shout-outs to listeners then into Ram Jam "Black Betty".
Always terrific to hear an old friend!

SDR catch, noted at 0231z sign on with some weak audio.
Better by 0330z.
Completely buried by PSK UTE at 0354z.
UTE started to fade out around 0500z, and seemed to be gone by 0517z
Off at 0532z.

Thanks for the show!
