S9 here, cutting off like SWR may be shutting off the amp.
Sounds really good when its there.
May have it straightened out at 0003 with "Papa Was a Rolling Stone".

SINPO 55445 at upwards of S9+20 peaks.

Random dropouts, but a great signal with good audio when transmitting.

Thanks for the broadcast (test?).

0010z - Noise floor increasing, so out with the preamp for now. Nonetheless, still S7 peaks and good audio when transmitting.

Excellent signal here, from 0006, when the station's on the air. Only stays on 15-30 seconds at a time. Seems to be a different song each time. Human League "Don't U Want Me, Baby?" Salt'n'Pepa "Push It," Queen "Bohemian Rhapsody," Queen "We Are the Champions," Queen "Another One Bites the Dust," Queen "Fat Bottomed Girls," Eagles "Witchy Woman"

Thanks for the test!

Hearing it @ 0008  (Apr 06) with brief music clips from wide variety of rock artists.  Good signal/audio, especially when playing more than a few seconds of music.  Testing?
Never sure, but off air ~0110?
Whomever it was, thanks.  It would have been an awesome show if the entire songs were  played.
