2209  Tune id to a series of ID's, including phonetically.  Music from a celeste (?).
Then a male vocal.
2217 45454, but the noise is becoming annoying.

2222UTC SIO 333, S4. Signal in the noise.
I can tell something is there and can see a carrier but only only get audio when signal peaks above the noise.
