Appeared a few min ago ...

Someone relaying Oriental music from the Firedrake jammer.  Just barely audible at S4 through heavy static crashes at 1929z.

Hmmm - no QRN/static crashing here (knock on wood ... do have a AC-line related noise source however)!

A high elevation or 'pitch' angle indicated here (indicating a NVI signal?) ...

Kinda used this technique to determine the angle of the incoming signal of the FD jammer:
