Up until about 03:20z , I was only looking at a carrier spike and listening to fragments along with static crashes - the only song I could make out was 99 red balloons at 03:05z

We're well into daylight here but TCS Relay has now come up to a listenable level "come on Eileen" "hungry like the wolf" et seq all good to listen to.

SINPO 11131

Thank you for transmitting the show ... being aware of the modest equipment often used, I get a hell of a kick when I can log TCS
