Fairly decent signal at 21:01UTC at S9 at the moment with music!
With Gordon Lightfoot The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Gave ID with Amphetamine Radio by older man at 21:05 and say this is not the Edmund Fitzgerald!

Good S7 signal here, but with some audio difficulties to start. Edmund Fitzgerald. Op states "this is Amphetamine Radio and not the Edmund Fitzgerald station".  :D

2134 UTC - Signal is S9 In WNY, audio is fair, QRM is making reception difficult.
2138 UTC - Amphetamine Radio ID, stand by for SSTV transmission. ORM is nasty !
2143 UTC - OM going QRT due to QRM, into Star Spangle Banner.
2145 UTC - Off the air.
