Here at 0333 UTC tune in...very hard to get it tuned in though! Finally around 6932.4ish with Midnight Rider-Allman Brothers at 0337 UTC.
0041 UTC SSTV
0043 UTC Yep, cool C&W version of Highway to Hell with fiddle and finger picking... 8)
0045 UTC Some quick SSTV and OFF abruptly

Myteaquinn, I retuned again and I finally got it dead on. Only thing is the 515 only does tenths on the readout ???
Rafman, I tune with my bad hearing, get it to the nearest tenth and add "ish" to the end of the frequency! ;)

i've got something at that frequency.  at 0342 either sstv or some other digital mode ended...then music....now as i'm typing this at 0345 it sounds like sstv again...signal is way down below the static...barely detectable.

if it was indeed sstv, anyone get a good sstv pic?  if not, any recording of it that you might post and i'll decode and post?

SDR recording catch.  I used the SSTV transmission to determine the correct frequency, and came up with 6932.33 kHz.



Also a Robot 24C SSTV image at 0344:
