Hey CT-Yankee! That lovely lady was my beloved cat "Chicken" who passed away last year. She was a true radio room cat as well as a might killer of vermin! Her only son Sammy carries on the tradition.....

2305 copyable signal, not much above the noise floor but definitely usable. Thanks for the show!

2348 hearing SSTV but too weak to decode
2353 signal just came up a bit. "Nationalhymne der DDR" per NCJAY in the chat.
