Strong carrier, may have heard a bit of music, but the level was very low. Carrier is peaking over S9

Yes, I think it may be.


Confirmed, two way talk of the SAR at 2246

Tomorrow will be the 39th Anniversary of the loss, thank you for the broadcast.

2242 I thought I heard a bell toll 3 times.  Calling the faithful to their knees?
2245 More tolling of the bell, then SAR comms
2248 Gordon Light - "The Wreck of the EF"
2255 ID, addy, more SAR comms.  IIRC, these are recordings of the actual comms?  Pretty bone-chilling...
22559 another sx about the event
2302 SAR comms; roll call of the crew, tolling of the bells, more comms
2309 G Lightfoot reprise
2325 ID, addy, 29 tolls of the bell
2327 off

S9 here.  Nice audio!
Thanks EFR!

S9 carrier, sounds like having some unwanted oscillation issues.  Heard some bells for a few seconds.  
Bells back on @ 2245z with good audio.
Seems to be Edmund Fitzgerald program.
Gordon Lightfoot song @ 2250

I had just a carrier with heavy pesky QRM at first and now I can hear the beginning of the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald at 2249z. About S9.

S9+15 when I tuned in at 2309z. Radio communications - mention of Whitefish Bay. Into Gordon Lightfoot's "Edmund Fitzgerald" at 2310z. Very good sounding AM audio. Some slight fade starting up. 55444.

2315z - ID/email address, more comms.

Wow - 39 years ago.
