13:43  “Little Part Of You” by Nazareth.
14:06  “Animals” by Nazareth.
14:11  “Blue Suede Shoes” by Elvis Presley.

14:19  “Nunta” by Nicole Guta.

Signal has been building now for the last 15 minutes

1331 "La Bamba" ?
1333 sx w/ lyric "get out of my way (face?)"
1336 YL/OM talk
1342 a respectable S6 w/ lots of audio - deep fades
1405 Faded down to the noise, but building again at 1430
1509 AC/DC "You Shook Me"
1520 pretty much in the dirt now with SS approaching at the tx
1550 what sounds like a YL being interviewed during a late peak in reception
1604 fading up again w/ unid mx - AC/DC?
1608 not hearing audio
1609:23 carrier off

On the Wellbrook loop which seems to have max sensitivity at about this freq
Simultaneously ungainfully employed replacing a shower valve core, but listening to Twente in the bathroom - I think we'll leave that detail out of the reception report
Many thanks Chris L for the memory jog; really hope you had your recorder going!

Here's the Signal Strength History as seen here:

I'm at work too but I'm listening via Twente where they are doing pretty well. They were S9 for a bit at 14:00z but they've dropped down a bit to about S7. Nice tunes & Russian speaking OM. The frequency tag on Twente says MTUSI I guess thats the university?

16:03 utc
I made it home in time to check on my rigs.
25900 at 16:04 utc   just barely barely audible in AM with audible carrier in usb. Occasional bits of audio in AM but really very weak.

 I am able to tell when the carrier goes off at 16:10 utc with BFO on Satellit 750 & A/D swl sloper antenna.

I caught the last few minutes.  +4 sig over a +1 noise floor - nice recep!  I was able to open the filter up wide and enjoy although their audio is necked down a bit.  AC/DC "Touch Too Much" and off at 1609.  Thanks for the reminder Chris!
