0044 music just above the noise floor, sounds like "Call Me the Breeze"
     most likely skippy, as the frequency is several hertz below 6955.
Easypal at 0045 - yep, it's Skippy (the Smoke Signal logo was sent in the waterfall)
0051 another easypal


0055 and another


0101 SSTV


0115 SSTV - signal has dropped a lot and MMSSTV couldn't hold onto it, but it was the squirrel image used by Squirrel Radio

Got it here, barely above the noise, with Tom Petty's "You Don't Know How it Feels" at 0111 UTC.

Now solidly above the noise, and the instrumental music's sounding good with my bandwidth set narrow as of 0132 UTC.

0135 UTC: SSTV

Heard from 0019 on the SDR recording, mostly an SIO 444 until a relatively quick fade out around 0102.
