Carrier has been visible, but no audio.  Hope that changes.

Having checking here, and still no audio.  Disappointing.

Still have a carrier here at 0232 but that is about it. Signal is a S6 at best. That's about it. :-\

Hearing bits of audio on 4070, maybe an ID @ 0309.  S5 carrier.
0328 - "Twilight Zone" by Golden Earring peaking thru occasionally.
0353 - "Radar Love" followed by ID.
0402 - "The Scientist" by Coldplay

0445Z Bouncing between S1 and S5 here...I think we're a bit too close to each other. Good enough copy to make out the tunes and voice ID's though.
