Actually a pretty good signal into Northern Canada this afternoon. The band is pretty noisy.

S7, had good audio, until the Steely Dan song @ 2233z, which is way overmodulated.

Hi,

I had this station here in W. Europe at 22.27 UTC, just as a trace (no real audio heard)

Then around 2231 I lost the carrier, and at 2231 too (less than 1' after), I got a stronger signal with music,
some modern jazz, till 2236 UTC when it was suddenly switched off.

Maybe 2 different stations, or at least 2 different transmitters.

SDR recording catch. Good signal here, mostly S9, with some fades.
Off at 2231 then back on with a somewhat stronger (more modulated?) signal. Sounds like a little too modulated.
Off at 2236z.

Probably a fair guess this was testing of a transmitter/system and nothing more
