SINPO - 33322, fair signal peaks, some fades to noise level.

I've been hearing the same since 2251z.  The tolling bell and music come through fairly well but the spoken audio is difficult to make out.  Off at 2331.

Weak signal and high noise level here this evening, SIO 232 in central NC.

For what its worth, here's a recording of the entire broadcast.  Parts of it are clear, other parts are lost in the noise.
