Possibly Boombox Radio who is testing tonight, but no solid ID heard here yet.

Music since I tuned in 0019.  Essentially an S5 on an S4 flloor, occasionally a bit stronger.

Intermittent pesc activity in the area tonight makes listening in AM tough, and I find myself switching USB/LSB a/r.

Nice S7 sig/audio now at 0050z, and Boombox ID at 0057z.

Thanks BBR!

S7 here with S4 noise floor. Lots of S7 static crashes though, and pescs on 6921.72 make for rough copy in AM.

Picking it up @ 0105 UTC, but it's way down there. Noise floor is S7.
Copy is better on USB for me, but it's still tough going.

0105--music
0110--speech
0118--speech


Thanks for the show anyway!
