Been seeing/hearing this since 0146 (now 0213) very weak.
Seems like it is predominantly music when it is up, but can't ID the genre; there may have been some OM talk at 0205z.
By 0223 had pretty much faded away, returned at 0227.
0241 Radio True North IDs; building now to a respectable S7 here.  "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying", "Sea of Love", "California Dreaming"
0250 Took some pescadore QRM for a while.
0259 "Dream a Little Dream of Me"
0301 RTN ID, addy,..."Honky Tonk Woman" (still hanging in around S4 here), "Take Me in your Arms and Rock Me", "White Rabbit"

Thanks for the show, RTN!

Noisy band but signal around S-5 with lots of QRn and QSB. Terrific to hear an old friend!
