About a S6 carrier, but noisy copy with "The Weight" @ 0130.
Maybe "Snow Blind Friend" by Steppenwolf @ 0133.
A couple of noisy ID's @ 0147.

0138 Music audible in the noise, but below the floor. Lots of QRM here. Still, a slightly better copy than Moonlight Radio earlier this evening. The sun has just set, so maybe it will get better.
0145 signal improving, still very noisy but distinguishable from the QRM.
OM talking at 0146. Maybe two OM.
0149 Dang it! Just realized that I'm picking up harmonics from a local AM station whose transmitter is just a couple of miles from home.  :'(

6949.7 AM, 0130, 4.12.16.  Weak music in and out of the static floor.

The signal reads S7, but it is really noisy tonight.
