UnId 6955 AM 0103 2 24 2018

Listening to a very weak signal with music.  Not enough to tell what it is.  By 0155 there is enough signal to tell there is a rock ballad.  I'm not familiar with the music.

Very weak carrier on the SDR recording, starting at 0102 UTC.
Some traces of music, then much better briefly around 0131, SIO 333.
0608 The signal came up to SIO 333, Jefferson Starship "Runaway"
1147 Off or gone. Thanks for the marathon broadcast!

I merged this thread with the one Slowtrain started, since from the SDR recording it is the same station that was continuously on.
