Couldn't hear anything before 0320, now signal gaining some strength and occasionally popping above wildly fluctuating noise floor from s1-7 (with preamp #1/Icom r75.)

Faded out for about 5 minutes now hearing something again @ 0351.

I heard this one  on my portable while dog walking with an exceptionally weak signal at 3:32z. At 3:34 I stopped to use one of the many "inductive coupling stations" that I have taken the liberty of installing on the stop signs in my neighborhood  (test leads  about a foot long). The signal jumped way up to a mighty S1 during "Love Shack" but I lost it about a minute or so later.
