Fades way down to the noise floor, S6 Peaks. Sounds like bluegrass music.

Audio seems like it may be low. Several Bluegrass songs.

Also it seems to be slowly drifting up the band, now at 6935.15

ID at 0149, into what sounds like Johnny Cash.

S9 +20 here. Super signal. Bluegrass, as noted. Sounds great!

0155 hearing Johnny Cash "Walk the Line" just about even with the noise floor here.

0215 signal has picked up somewhat.  "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" coming in pretty clear.

A fair signal to the west coast of Canada. Hearing Johnny Cash and now what sounds like June Carter Cash singing Will The Circle Be Unbroken. Now I'm going to Jackson at 0205Z. Some OTHR interference but not too bad at the moment. Thanks for the show.
