I had a carrier circa 1936-1950 UTC during the time period of this planned test transmission. Possibly some trace audio, but difficult to tell for sure.

I also had a weak carrier on 15068.8 AM from 2032-2046 UTC, with 3 brief fade-ups of music.
Here's a short recording of the best of the 3 fade-ups at 2035 UTC:

Thanks Skipmuck and Chris! Antenna too close to transmitter and therefor a lot of RF being around the system. Easy to fix...
Not bad with only 8 watts!
