Nice fadeup at 0118 UTC with ID and noted request "from someone in New Jersey for Black Sabbath"- into War Pigs.  S-9 at fadeup for about a minute, now down into noise again :(

Listening on 6973-- killer het on 6975 at my QTH makes freq unusable here.
Switch rx to 6975 USB and notching QRM out-- S-7 peaks now.
