Good signal from WTCR on 6925 since sign-on fanfare around 0232z. Not taking notes but have heard Billy Idol, Garbage so far. S9, some fades to S3 but generally staying above the local noise level.
0248z: WTCR ID, Clash.
0305z: Pretenders - Stop Your Sobbing, still good signal, S9 with some fades to around S3 noise level.
0340z: Sign off ID after Jimmy Mack.

Solid signal throughout, usually S9 with some fades to S3 on the indoor fugloop.
