Fair signal into eastern Nebraska but rather noisy conditions.
Instrumental rock music @ 0029.
Heavy metal guitar ~0035.
0038 SSTV image of Union Jack but text not legible.  Then into electronic music.
Too deep in noise floor @ 0055.

Just barely audible here in Houston, but slowly improving.

00:55 SSTV (couldn't get a good copy) and back into music.
