Mostly just a weak carrier here, occasional bits of unusable music :-(

I heard it just a little on my Kaito 321 small portable short wave receiver.   It was hard to receive, the propagation is not good and there are static
crashes in the background on the band as well.    Sorry I did not get to hear it in stereo.
