S9 signal at the peaks on  6925 USB
2012z - David Bowie Space Oddity
2015z - off air
edit:  I assume it went off the air.  The TX cut out abruptly in during the song.  I stuck around for a minute or two and tuned elsewhere.

Tuned in at 2020 to faint music.  The broadcast ended abruptly at 2023.

Since another reporter noted that the BC was over at 2015, maybe its a different BC.

Nothing visible on the Elad's main window, but there was a 5 dB spike on the IF window.
