0255 UTC I'm hearing music right at the noise floor here....too much storm static to put my ears close to the speakers to ID
0302 UTC Clarinet or flute music came up for about 10 seconds here, but no ID using shazam :(
0307 UTC Just to much noise here to copy...the peskie on LSB isn't helping things either

Managed to catch the last few minutes on my PL-600 without the external antenna, so it must have been a really good signal. Sign off was at about 0340z.
