All I can see in the Perseus program waterfall is an intermitent signal streak and no audio heard except the slightest bit in the noise. Wish I was getting it better.

Time check as "53 minutes past UTC" and then Pop selection "Who can it be now" by the Police ( one of my favorites) Signal dropped some down to s2-s3 with fading ( sunset enhancement gone now) other wise still a decent copy....

Recorder Catch on 6925 USB

Generally weak towards to front end of the show, but as Chris S noted, improving over time and the last half hour was quite good actually; about an S8.  Many clear live and canned IDs.

Thanks RTN!

Were you using a directional antenna? I could barely hear you & the signal was very weak, not your usual
KIPM-like powerhouse.
