Signal is -1, garbled audio, pretty sure I heard "pip pip" but not much else.

Song "America" or "God Save the Queen" ?? at 0101Z

S8 but very garbled, noisy.  Into talk at 0103.

6931 AM with God Save the Queen at 01:15, seems like they're playing this over again.

Signal is just above QRN level.  Have not heard an ID yet.
