Heard the relay relaying last night, but I was busy and only caught bits and pieces of the broadcast,
so I didn't do any actual logging of this transmission.
Did hear a version of "Nichole" that brought back some mammaries.

If I remember last evening, the signal was "white-hot" at -25 dB at times, so that's great.
