Came on 0220z, and was about an S9+5 here, with great audio playing country.

Props have gone downhill fast, and is now fluttery and fady with S7 peaks here around 0230z.

0236 Up to S9+10 here during song about a jukebox, followed by "Big John"

Don't recognize the songs, but a good S8 signal with some fading.

They are weakly audible here in MO. Peaking at about S3. way degraded propagation tonight.

Recheck at 2:50z finds them much better now S5 to S6. I can't ID the tunes though. Give me some Hank Williams & Bill Monroe & I'm good,but I don't recognize any of these tunes.

0259 UTC, as others have mentioned a challenging night for propagation. Signal is up and down, Hitting S8 on peaks, then down below the noise floor.

Not a great copy here in Iowa, but it seems to be getting better. Audio seems low for a signal peaking at S9+

Ended abruptly with some sort of weird digital burst at 0305.

SDR catch. Sign on at 0219z, into music at 0220z "Dust Off The Bottle".  S8 to S9 signal, the modulation seemed a little low.
Peak in the signal around 0245z-0250z, up to S9+15. Then the signal crashed, barely audible by 0300z.
Off at 0305z.
