I had a carrier from about 0000-0940 UTC. Not sure about any audio, I am checking a few spots to see if there's any.

0913 Perhaps some trace audio.
0930 More trace audio heard.

I was only able to get audio from the 2 SDR's that I listed. There was a couple of others that had a strong carrier but no audio.

There's an SDR in Warrenton, VA. I've been able to get a carrier and a bit of audio on, monitoring that frequency, but that's about it. I also heard some audio on Chris's 900 ft. loop one night, but static levels were so high that night I couldn't make out what it was.
