Good reception on measured 6949.876 on the west coast (Victoria, BC).  No ID yet, but I'm suspecting Radio True North.  They were on last night with a Moscow based DJ relay.   I'll post if I hear a definite ID.

0340 UTC Neal McCoy, "Wink".  Yeah, signal looks like it could be RTN, but audio does not sound like him.  Audio is a little hollow, like on an open mic or something like that.  Maybe the recorded source is a bit off if it is a relay for someone else?

(edit)  KCPR ID at 0352 and 0355 UTC.   Off at 0358:30

This was the SSTV image at 0350 UTC:

   You may be correct.   Especially with their SSTV image, which means usually Wolverine Radio.   BUT, the SSTV which was difficult to copy, even here (signal deteriorated to about an S5 signal) shows 2 dogs, and a ?callsign over the lower third of the dogs.  Looks like KC??  .   Then some slow CW, which I think was KCFR??

Right!  KCPR.  A better image (still not perfect, though) at 04:16 with clear kcpr visible to the R of the image (a dwarf boxer??).  For some reason the top 20% of the image is shifted to the right on my machine.

I'm guessing this is what I heard, though rough copy obscured any IDs.

Good copy here (for KCRP on this side of the country) on the SDR recording. Some peaks to S8 around 0409z. I could copy the SSTV but the quality was not great. You could recognize the image, though.

Reviewing my SDR recording:

0333utc I liked this version of Whiskey in the Jar
0354utc Muppet Show theme song! :)
0424utc Very weak, must have gone long

My reception of the Noble Dogs SSTV is the same as Token's. The Fat Shooter Kid is skewed on the top half.
