And now back to AM, mode, and not hearing anything.

Cheers Chris.
We are still on air in AM mode, staying on for at least another hour, if it gets better, we'll stay a bit longer.

2102- very faint carrier detected, no audio being heard yet
2105- OM voice heard for a second or two
2106- definite music being heard listening in USB
2113- I think I just heard the ID as "Crazy Wave Radio"  :)
2137- just a faint carrier detected and no more audio heard since 2113 UTC

 Thanks for the broadcast guys!  :) Can you confirm that I heard the ID at 2113 UTC?

I've been tuned to 11455 AM for the last 45 minutes and getting occasional fade ups of a weak carrier. It's 2200 UTC and still no signs of audio  :(

Looks like the band is shutting down so we are calling it a day (or night here in Germany!)

Thanks to those who heard us and thanks to those that didn't but tried.

AW and Chris Ise.........over and out
