Back on at 2358 UTC with "Let It Ride"-BTO

Also heard "Let It Ride" and ID, The Crystal Ship at 0001. Signal is a varied S7-9 here with good audio. Also songs by Judas Priest and the Boss with signal kicking up to 9+. Thanks for the show this evening TCS and Relay! ;D

S8, kinda choppy here. Audio pretty rough at times, also.

Looks like 2340 sign on as per the SDR recording, with a break from 2348 to 2357 or so.

2340 Kansas "Carry On Wayward Son"
2346 REO Speedwagon "Keep Pushin'"

Had them with lots of noise. Music hard to get, but voice was clear at first. Got the station ID, then signal got worse.
