All I get here is that incessant TIS loop with traces of Celestial under...
0010 UTC weak carrier on 1720, but no audio...too much band noise tonight!
0028 UTC Hearing Dr. Benway now weakly with ID and email address. Signal low in the noise, but rising above now and then. T-shirt plug for Wounded Warriors.
0034 UTC Signal peak at S7 above S6 noise floor....sounds like story time now!
Switched over to 6925 AM at 0039 UTC...

S8, fair audio level.  "Panic Switch" @ 0010z
ID and email @ 0015z, getting some fading.
Deeper fades at 0022, sometimes not audible at all, then back up to S8.
Shoutouts @ 0028 [thanks!]

Poor copy, mostly threshold audio but I did catch an ID given at 0028z by Doctor Benway.  Thanks for the shout-out at 0035z.  Off at 0038z.
