0116 got something at the noise floor here.
0118 a bit above the noise now, metal music.
0120 recognize the song as being one by Slayer.
0123 It's hard to tell what's on now. Damned poor propagation conditions. Sounds like a crowd chanting.
0126 new song starting up. Doesn't sound like Slayer now.
0137 still listening, still getting a variety of metal acts at or just above the noise, sometimes with some decent peaks.
0159 still listening. I missed the SSTV earlier but have the SDR recording so hopefully I'll have a good copy on the playback.
     (EDIT: Here it is, from 0141, in MR90 mode)


0201 hearing "Moby Dick" Led Zeppelin, wondering which version it is. I think the one on "How The West Was Won."
0206 SSTV sent in MR90 mode:


0209 sounds like "Moby Dick" again
0212 SSTV in Robot 24 mode:


0213 off

0120  Without the hint, I never would have heard or seen this one!

Regardless, very, very faint and certainly "unusable."
