Just signing on now with repeated ID, and into Christmas music.
Good reception even though I am on the 43m folded dipole.

A slight carrier detected-----but picking up some music now. 'The song has the words "let it show" or "let it snow" in it. It may have dropped off the air at 0100?----Now I see the carrier again....music again too. May have heard an ID----at 0105 UTC. The signal is picking up nicely now, running an S6 into GA at 0107
