Sorry for the late log but domestic QRM caused a delay in reporting. Nice audio and very good signal. Thanks for the show. I had a good signal on 6949.6.
All logs made from my own SDRs, boatanchors, and antennas

SDR recording catch, first heard from 2322-2342, no ID heard but based on the R&B music perhaps Captain Morgan?  SIO 333.
Then off and on a few times, some changes to frequency, perhaps adjusting the equipment, then back on with music. Some peaks to SIO 444, also some deep fades.
Off with an ID at 0016.
