Someone just fired up on 6876 KHz. Some pop song "hello little boys, hello little girls". Nice S9+20 signal. TCS relay ID at 2333 UTC.

ID with 'sounds of a satisfied listener'.  S8 with Berlin song @ 2335z, good audio.
Still S8 and good audio @ 0022z with divinyls song.  Some 'barber-poling' on the waterfall display.
