Red Mercury Labs wasn't doing too well here in NH when he signed on but the signal has been coming up, S8 now.

0343z RML ID (Spike is preparing a concoction to make the evening a bit more pleasant).
0356z Off, We also thank you for the show... Signal was still holding S8 at the end.

They followed up the broadcast with two SSTV transmissions. By the time I'd missed the 1st one entirely, and only got a partial decode of the 2nd one.

Let's just say that what has been seen cannot be unseen...  :o

Did anyone else get these? Is that what I think it is?? No, nevermind, I don't want to know.
