SDR recording catch.

Carrier received about 2345-0941 UTC per my SDR recording & waterfall. Some audio noted from time to time, like around 0710, 0857 UTC.

Not bad at all considering it's summer, with all the storms and static, plus worse MW ionospheric conditions. Conditions should start improving in a month or two.
