2126 very weak copy here, so I'm using Chris' Kiwi SDR for a fair copy there. Thanks for the show comrades!
2135 switched to Elida OH kiwi SDR, strong signal there.
2146 signal coming up in Denver, but Elida SDR still much better.
2222 still a good signal in Elida

Just as some people seem to be losing the signal, this just amped up big here out west at 2247 UTC. Hearing music with a fair signal well above the noise, except for this annoying interference whistle on the frequency.

Update: This was short-lived. By 2300 UTC, either off or back deep under the noise.

But wait, it's back to audible, barely, as of 2308 UTC.
