Weak here but just above the noise with Money-Pink Floyd at 0157 UTC
Fading in and out...hearing "Time"-Pink Floyd at 0203 UTC
0206 UTC Latest fade in and I'm hearing "warm my bones beside the fire", so Time it still is....
0225 UTC A pulsing noise mixing with "Another Brick In the Wall"
0229 UTC I'm getting some broadband static now...between that and the pulsing noise, further copy is impossible.
Well, thanks for the broadcast Dr. Benway! It reminds me of the mid 1980's stayin up until the wee hours of the morning listening to Pirate Radio New England and Pirate Radio Central fading in and out of the noise. Great memories there!

ID @ 0159 with email address

Variable quality from "it's not there" to "poor."

Best signal at my place with dipole cut for 19 meters.  Other antennas are too noisy.

Gonna have to dig out the Kiwa loop!

S7 and good copy here.  "Money" by PF @ 0158z.  ID and email @ 0200z.  "Time" by PF @ 0203z
Getting some fades @ 0215z, between S5 and S8, but mostly still good copy.
