Tough copy this early in the day, but about an SIO 222 to 333 on peaks.

Have them at 2140 UTC on 6770 AM on the K2SDR WebSDR.  Pretty rough copy, S5 to S7 with S5 noise levels right now.  Sometimes fading completely down into the noise with only a slight carrier visible on the waterfall. 

Even when conditions are terrible I can usually see a carrier on 6770.  Same goes for my local RX setup.  I can almost always switch into USB or CW mode and tune around for that carrier tone whine around 6770.  As I write this, the signal gets weaker and weaker.  No audio heard at all as of 2143 UTC.

There's some sort of weak utility signal at roughly 6775.5 USB and a much stronger one at 6776.5 USB.  I had to narrow the AM bandwidth down a bit to take those signals out

2145 UTC - I can now hear an OM and a YL talking down in the noise.  Peaking back to a S6 but still very noisy.
