Signal is just above the noise level here at 0022 UTC. Is this RFW using lowpower or did the band go long early this evening?
0028 UTC I could just make out the voice of Dick Weed, but nada on the copy
0030 UTC Gone completely :(

Yes, Mr. Farley was making RF at an S7 with a touch of QSB.
Could hear you two conversing before the start of your impromptu Show.

SDR recording catch. Extremely weak here, unfortunately, not much above the noise floor.
