That's because it is stereo, you crazed Molvanian! I've got one of Chris S's Kiwi's set on CQuam and am getting full separation on the headphones. The KRAP op is crafty.

01.02 UTC carrier came on, music, but still very thin
01.13 UTC announcement, illegible, then Great Van Fleet - Heat Above (by Shazam)
01.23 UTC some talk, but too weak
01.32 UTC signal improved, BTO - Take It Like A Man
01.36 UTC Station Identification by a male announcer, about Little Richard, overdrive,
we will QSL, very nice, e-mail given twice and spelled: ROKFRED@proton.me
01.37 UTC Blackfoot - Dry Country (by Shazam)
01.41 UTC carrier vanished

Thanks for the show! Please eQSL - if possible - to my addy below. But I try the e-mail as well.
Thanks for any response. Finally I made a short video recording, if interested!



The carrier was good, but the AM audio was quite low here.
Anyway, congratz for crossing the pond!
