Fair signal with fading on 6149.6 KHZ at 0004 UTC tune-in. Noisy, but fading well above the noise floor. RFW "RPM" ID at 0004 UTC into swingtime jazz tune. email address for QSL at 0007 UTC then more swingtime jazz. Look out "Z"! The Russians are coming.....
0014 UTC "RPM" ID....signal here is about S6 with nice clean audio...repeat of previous RPM program of big band jazz.
0020 UTC I'm getting that fan flutter QRM now....is this some kind of OTH radar or something? Same broadband interference when Channel Z was on recently.

0016  Not bad signal, weak but clear. Instrumental
Technically, this is now 25, not 24 UTC
0020 Clarinet piece.. sounds like Benny Goodman maybe ? An instrumental of " That man of mine " ?
0028  RFW Dick Weed ID  ( Local pulse type QRN killing me here.. can't seem to null it with the usual bag of tricks, worse, it's +- 15 kHz of RFW ! Drat the luck. Best antenna is small mag loop)
0034 S7-8 now
0041 RFW RPM id
0050 off , carrier staying with us.
