Very poor signal here (S0) and distorted audio.

Occasionally popping thru the noise from encroaching storms in the Dakotas.  Just noted that they have snow out thar!

S8-S9 with the noise here. Some fading. Hard copy at times.

ID's are hard to understand. Some distortion on the audio. ID sounded like WCS

0004 WCS We're Collective Soul ID and then sounds like they are off.

Nice S9 signal into upstate NY but Low-fi audio.  Sounds like they're feeding the XMTR through a funnel!  Collective Soul at 2354.

SDR recording catch. 2317 sign on. Tough copy, a bit of static and what seemed like low modulation.
