VERY weak here in western TN

0338: Doors - Roadhouse Blues
0342: Cash - I Walk the Line
0349: Alice in Chains - Rooster
0355: Rage - Killing in the Name

Took a long dive under the noise floor, back with

0413: Motörhead - Ace of Spades
0415: Op (DimBulb mentioned he heard a shout out to EE.. your going to have to shout louder ;)
0416: Green Day - Holiday
0426: Op
0428: Priest - Breaking the Law
0434: Oingo Boingo - Dead Man's Party
0437: Maiden - Dance of Death
0449: BÖC - Reaper
0455: Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
0459: barely caught the Op mention "one more song"
0500: Of Monsters and Men - Dirty Paws

Very challenging reception tonight, when audible the signal was just barely above the noise floor. Good practice for DXing TA's ;) Thanks for the show!

RML voice at 0406 UTC.  Signal is very weak tonight for some reason, must be odd conditions.  I can just barely make out what is being said.

Radio Mercury Labs is S5 here in NH, mostly staying above the noise.  Unusually noisy tonight, we're not supposed to have thunderstorms in January.

0408z RML ID and then took a big long fade down into the noise
0425z Still way down in the noise
0432z Coming up now, I can hear some music in there - yes, Dead Man's Party

0446z He's back!  S6-S7 now, ID and into Don't Fear the Reaper
0455z Psycho Killer

Tune in here at 0447 UTC during "Don't Fear the Reaper"-Blue Oyster Cult, then at 0452 man announcer with..."only way is more cowbell". 0455 Song-"Psycho Killer"-Talking Heads, then Unid song. At 0450 man announcer with "...59 minutes past the hour...coming up to 00". Said something about the propagation, then "one more song...we will leave the band?" then unid song and assumed close down around 0503. Signal slowly faded in and out of the noise peaking at S3. No clear ID heard. Good day for pirate activity today(EDT here)

Rather weak copy on the SDR recording. I could pick out Psycho Killer at 0456z.
Brief peak around 0508.
I continued to hear very faint music until about 0522, not sure if this was RML or someone else.
