Still going into early morning on the West coast. 0957 UTC

SIO = 424 Deep deep fades with a noisy band.

Heard Midnight Oil (Beds are burning), Boston (more than a feeling), Guns n Roses and Sweet Home Alabama.

Excellent audio quality on the peaks, you can actually hear the cymbals crash !!

Keep up the great work RTN !!!

RTN with ID and into REO Speedwagon at 1023z, S6 at the moment over the static.  Very listenable signal.  Daylight breaking here now.  Thanks RTN!

1030z: Just checked a remote in Japan and heard RTN playing Peter Schilling's Major Tom along with a nice ID.

I have some audio here in NY at 1031 UTC.  Can only detect that it's a song with male vocals, don't recognize the song.  This was followed by a computer generated female voice ID and/or announcement. I have the carrier on 6924.5 kHz.
