Solar Federation Radio is coming in but as clearly as it could, probably due to noisy conditions. Music also heard. Thanks for the show.

Mr. Postman….station is coming in much clearer

Fair to good reception into Masset, BC but almost 90 minutes before LSS.
01:36   Block Rockin' Beats by The Chemical Brothers
01:37  Robotic sounding ID, followed by Alive by Pearl Jam
then, "Attention all planets of the solar federation, we have assumed control"  repeated several times.
01:40  The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair (22/6/69 Pop Sundae) by Led Zeppelin
....01:52   The Kingsmen - Louie Louie
01:53   "Attention all planets again", then Mr Postman
....Thanks for the heads up, at 01:58!!!
02:20   West coast transmitter on, with a marked improvement to very good level.  Audio test mentioned at 02:20:28.  Excellent audio and much louder than before!
02:25  "Wake up the west coast", while playing The Joker by the Steve Miller Band
....  03:04   Great signal continues into Masset, BC and especially from 5 minutes ago, but looks like the transmitter is switched back now to the East coast transmitter.  Barely any difference noted out here off the NW coast of North America!

Switched over after Igloo/TRSW/MRI ended about 0130. Big signal, S7 peaking at 9 and about 3 kHz wide, with very low band noise.

0159 "These Boots Are Made For Walking," Nancy Sinatra
0214 EDM with crow sounds
0219 Switching to west coast transmitter, and reception here drops off dramatically (though still about an S5)

Thanks for the broadcast!
