Fair signal in New Hampshire, S4-S5 but deep fades can make for rough copy

2328z Chris Isaak - Wicked Games
2330z The Chemical Brothers - Setting Sun
2334z Pause and switch to USB. copy much better now at S7
2338z SSTV but can't sync up
2341z The Chemical Brothers - The Test
2343z Another SSTV but still can't sync up for some reason, signal seems strong enough
2350z CW "Pirate radio bumps in the night and bumps in the road"
2353z CW, weak at start so didn't quite get it - something like: "No rules, no direction and no protocol - bumps in the night and bumps in the road - peewee is gone"

Had an occasional weak trace on the waterfall.
Seems to have switched to USB, weak audio, music mostly in the noise @ 2335
2338 - SSTV - poor decode, looks like maybe one that Pee Wee has sent before...
2344 - SSTV with Pee Wee was Here....
2352 - CW ID and more cw about bumps in the night and no rules, very weak

Not hearing much switch to USB but it in the mud so we wait and see if it improves hearing SSTV at the moment 23:38UTC. Heard some music and then at 23:44UTC another SSTV transmission! Heard some music and then CW signal again barely audible at 23:52UTC
