I have an awful copy on them here in Iowa tonight. I can tell its music, but no real intelligible audio yet. I am sure it will improve as the night goes on.

SDR recording catch. 0304 sign on with a very weak signal, just some audio popping up above the noise from time to time.

Switched to 6925 at 0358 which unfortunately was covered by the PSK UTE. The UTE left at 0446.
Somewhat better signal from RTN by this time, also. ID at 0447.

Switched to 6930 at 0515. The signal continued to improve. Had it not been for the static, it would have been pretty good, esp for RTN here.

ID at 0902 and then off at 0903. Thanks for the show, RTN!
