Good signal near Edmonton, Alberta at 0246 utc... well over the local static crashes.  And I see RTN is listening remotely here as well...

Initially just poor, but now (04:07) improved to good reception.  RTN normally provides a powerful signal into Victoria, but not so tonight.  Perhaps as darkness intensifies here, signals will improve.  73, Walt

Mostly JBA in an SDR Recording, but had a few peaks where I could hear some detail.

0415 Def hear RTN talking
0435 "Burning Down the House"
0510 sounds like "Planet Claire"
0703 off

Nice audio during peaks, and thanks RTN!

SDR recording catch. Mostly just a carrier, but then some audio starting around 0330.
Better by 0500, maybe an SIO 322 to 333.

Excellent Signal from RTN  Last evening 5/9 + 6.925 AM . The time this video was taken was approx 02:15 utc. Nice to hear RTN  After being off the air for some time  Having problems with audio feedback with a long delay?  73 Vinylman

Yeah, caught that shout out;  first heard @ 0211, American Woman by Guess Who, "Radio True North" @ 0237, signal improving for about 1 hour then began to degrade & useless due to atmos. noise by 0345. Thanks for the show.  8)
