Best signal I've heard, first time I've made out music. Sounds similar to Dr. Who's theme song.

Strong signal when I switched from the portable to a real radio during "Jamming". (Brother Stairs harmonic from 900khz up was killing the portable.) Then the bottom dropped out of the band around ten minutes. I heard the beginning of the dance music clearly and to switch to SSB to grab audio before it was over.  Sounded good until then. You might want to boost the audio a tad, it sounds like you've got plenty of carrier but the audio was just a little low. SIO 444. It was my bad luck the sweet spot moved on.
