Station was really strong into Chicago during the Germany Calling IS phase and the first anthem type song. SINPO 45544

Right at about 2257, the signal took a big dive here and is now just a het.

Signal still very good (no change at all, really) at 2332 UTC. Worth noting is that the email address germanycalling@gmail.com works - the operator replied to a brief signal report with some station information and an e-QSL.
