Tuned in at 0114utc, weak signal, CW interference, male speaking, pop music, fading in and out, sounds like a Spanish language station.

Nice signal here in Georgia, even with thunder storms in the area.
Too bad I only taught the end of the program!
Nice audio, cool guitar solo!
I decoded the last image but can't figure out how to upload it!  Maybe I'm posting too late for that!

Just getting around to listening to the SDR recording now. Mostly a SIO 433 while in AM mode.  Maybe 444 in USB mode.
