Weak, with clear sections at peaks

I got about the last 3-4 minutes of it.

I was wondering why the signal was so weak when I realized I'd cranked down the gain while listening to the AM guys running their Cali Kilowatts up on 40 w/ the new antenna between pirate tx'es. By then it was too late. Live and learn. At least I know what it was now.
