Right down at the noise floor here, I can tell something is in there, but not what.  For the first minute or so the station was on air it was S4 and nice, but faded rapidly.

Great tune by a band with a banjo. Good sounding country or bluegrass tune. Very nice sounding song at S8 with a bit of low noise. Thanks for the broadcast.
