Fair to Good signal here amidst moderate band noise with flute? music at 0008 UTC, then YL talkover at 0010 UTC ???
Signal picked up nicely at 0013 UTC with some kind of spoken word skit, then clear ID at 0015 UTC. Frequency on the NRD-515 is 6948.3ish
0030 UTC Man announcer with ID "WREC" "Radio Free East Coast", into a strange song named "Psycho Chicken" per Chris Smol in IRC chat
0037 UTC Synth voiced YL with ID..."WREC"
0044 UTC YL with ID, into a C&W/folk tune with harmonica and man singer
Hard to tell with the noise, but OFF around 0057 UTC? Carrier gone for sure at 0058 UTC

Thanks for the unusual show tonight WREC! Wish there wasn't so much noise on the bands this evening...I'll have to listen back on the recording 8)

S5 carrier but WAY too noisy here to get audio due to storms.

A slight carrier on the Grundig YB-400, but not enough audio to id it on the peaks. I'll call the antenna a random wire, 25 feet of bell wire strung under the eaves of the back porch.

Good to hear you're back, PJ. That RS mixer you sold me years ago is on the table across the room.

I listened back on my recording from last night, and at 0015 UTC there was a clear ID by a YL that mentions both the Blue Ridge Summit-PA and Wellsville*-NY maildrop address. I suspect this is a rebroadcast of an old recording?

EDIT:*Belfast :)

Thanks for the update Andy! I listened again to the ID by the synthesized voice YL at 0015 UTC and she gives the addresses for the Blue Ridge Summit and the BELFAST, NY maildrop! My mistake  8)
