Ah! The day Joe Friday caught Blue Boy Fansome and his goofball addled crumb-bum friends about to put the baby in the oven. Pasadena is overrun with those beatnik types.

1849 - I was parked on 6925 and looked up and saw what "might"
be a vy weak SSTV sig ~6950. Started MMSSTV and tuned
it in and caught this before the station faded completely.
Think it fell through a crack in the noise floor!
