Tuned in at 0055 UTC to hear "Ecstacy" by ATB. A good, clear signal well above the noise. Probably the loudest pirate I've heard here in a good month or so!

0059 UTC: "Sweet Home Alabama." There is noticeable SSB distortion on the music here, as well as moderate fading.

0104 UTC: "Spirit in the Sky." The fading and noise is getting a bit worse here, but the signal's still coming in loud.

There were a couple songs in there I couldn't ID; but as of 0115 UTC playing Metallica's "The Unforgiven," which just stopped at 0118 UTC. Then into a Megadeth song. The noise and SSB distortion here is getting worse.

0123 UTC: "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. (Thanks for the broadcast, even though I hate this song with a burning passion!)

0124 UTC: The music stopped suddenly and then SSTV started.

0126 UTC: Music's back with Lynyrd Skynyrd's "That Smell."

0131 UTC: Another SSTV transmission, followed by another at 0133 UTC. Then gone.
