01:15 Sig down under and then up to 30 over as if the amp was turned on.  Not like QSB, On and Off.  Listening on 2 rigs and 2 antennas.  01:21 SSTV.

01:34  Doing better on the inverted L with a long horizontal leg vs the 1/4 WL vertical. S-10+ vs S-8.

RFF Pirate Radio, 6945 USB, 0032, 10.2.16.  Listening pretty much since 0032 with "Whip it," then on and off with music, 0041 apparent ID (unintelligable here), more off and on including "Locomotion," 0049 - 0058 off, then back with music, 0112 clear ID, and then fading in and out with another clear ID at 0130. 

Lots of fading in and out here.
