2247 music that sounds like Irish folk songs, good signal here.
2255 OM on the mic, unfortunately signal is only fair here. Giving mail drop address which makes me wonder if this is a relay of an old show. (EDIT - ah, others can hear the joke. ;) )
2302 swing tune starting following one last Irish song
2304 back to Irish music
2318 OM on the mic, signal is improving again and I can understand most of what's being said.
2320 sounds like Van Morrison? (Going without shazam at the moment). Signal is S9 with +10 peaks now.
2322 SSTV


2324 SSTV


2326 OFF
