On at 0315Z with RTN theme music. S9 to my west coast location.
0440Z went from S9+ to barely audible in under a minute.
0540Z RTN had been on 6925 but an ssb station playing Doc Watson came up at 0535Z and RTN has moved to 6940. The ssb station has yet to ID.

About S8 here, good audio, just a tad wider than 7.5 kHz, starts to roll off at 7.5 kHz with a little energy out to just short of 8 kHz.

SDR recording catch. Somewhat weak at sign on, but getting better by around 0400.

Back on 6940 AM at 0540 with "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer", then YL ID and contact info, and OM ID.
