0200 "Don't You Forget About Me" Simple Minds, fair to good signal here. Thanks for the show!
0202 seems to be off.
0203 back on, don't recognize the song "Long Cool Woman In a Black Dress"The Hollies, signal's quite good now.
0211 "Green-Eyed Lady" Sugarloaf
0218 signal has faded, hearing a new tune, reggae or reggae-ish
0223 MUF must be sinking like a stone. JBA now, sometimes faded out completely. Sounds like the same song is still playing.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I received seven SSTV images (0235z, 0255z, 0301z, 0319z, 0321z, 0323z, and 0324z) but all were of pretty rough quality and aren't worth sharing since others had better copies posted here. Thanks for the show Skippy!

Clear signal around S7. Fading in and out here. Really good when it fades in. Thanks for the broadcast.

Long Cool Woman sounding very good.
