1816 Tune in. S3-S7 with a lot of the usual daytime background QRN.
1820 Propagation "fell off a cliff". Stuck at S3-S4, half in the noise.
1825 Signal is back. The Kinks, "Father Christmas".
1826 "This is the Azimuth Coordinator..." with signoff announcement - email QSL address given (6150)
1827 Star-Spangled Banner.
1829 TX off

The only thing on the band on an SDR in New Hampshire.
