1430z - Shortwave Papa has been in/out of the noise in New Hampshire, peaking S4 at times but mostly S1-S2.  Playing pop/rock tunes.

1610z - Still going, CCR - I Put A Spell On You

1616z Very weak here but see carrier, spurts of music...

Right at noise floor threshold most of the time...

1619z came up to s3 for a minute, unknown song [sounded like gospel type song with background singers]

I'm getting audio fading in and out of the noise here at 1735 UTC. Signal is only above the noise for a second or two and then back down again. Not enough to ID the song!
1800 UTC Seems that the signal was best at 1735 UTC, as I could get only bits of audio until 1740 UTC and now at 1800 UTC, at best a weak carrier. :(

I just tuned in at 2000 UTC, signal up and down S3-S4.  Not the best copy here but good enough to easily ID songs and some announcements.

Signal just jumped up to listenable levels at 2008 UTC :) with UNID song ending, and at 2009 UTC "Wonderful World"-Sam Cooke with announcer voiceover during the song. Lasted a couple of minutes with S3 peak, then back into the noise again at 2011 UTC :(
2026 UTC Signal up again with an UNID funky pop tune that you could dance to
2038 UTC "Drivers Seat"-Sniff & the Tears?
2054 UTC Nice even signal at S3 now, but I have no clue what this song is... reggae sounding pop tune
2057 UTC A Euro folksy pop sounding tune ;D
2101 UTC Signal disappeared into the noise...only a weak carrier now. I measure the frequency as 15070.1 KHZ AM

Thanks for the show today Shortwave Papa! Tough copy most of the time, but some peak moments over the last hour that would be better if I knew the names of the songs I was hearing ;)
