Carrier, some audio here.

EDIT: Reviewed the SDR recording, carrier up at 0117. Remained very weak until 0141, when music became more consistently audible below the noise floor. Typically I could hear the bass line and the vocals when the singer hit some high notes, but not much else of it. Very high QRN on 43m tonight.
