1555 UTC Tuned in to a very nice signal with excellent audio but some deep fades with "Root Down"-Beastie Boys
1557 UTC "Hihache"-Lafayette Afro Rock Band (Getting some S7 peaks!)
1604 UTC "The Choice Is Yours"-Black Sheep
1607 UTC Signal faded right to the noise floor  :(
1610 UTC Just a weak carrier now..

Thanks for the 49 meter band test whoever! I recorded it if you are interested.  :)

1556 UTC - Hearing some audio but weak signal down in the noise. 
1601 UTC- Switched antenna's signal is S5-S7, slight fading, audio is fair.
1622 UTC - Hearing some audio, hard to understand.
1625 UTC - Music now playing but weak.
