Someday I will learn to keep a SSTV program running all the time.

Heard the sounds and I was not quick enough. Over at 0004, I think.

Freebird by Skynyrd. Signal is S9+10. Thanks for the broadcast.

Show went off the air after several SSTVs. Then, Eye In the Sky by Alan Parsons Project interrupted by a SSTV again.

Carrier and hints of audio coming in directly to my radio here, but mostly listening via the Weiser, Idaho, SDR, which has good reception of this signal ...

0048 UTC: "Us and Them" by Pink Floyd.
0052 UTC: "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" by Pink Floyd.
0057 UTC: Damn Skippy SSTV transmission.
0058 UTC: Back to "Pigs."
0059 UTC: Lots of CW over the Pink Floyd.

Good signal onto the isthmus at 0112Z, "Slip Slidin' Away" to a brief break in audio, SSTV, and into music that I wouldn't have known was Zeppelin if I hadn't read logs before typing up this report.  Not bad, though.  0119Z CW decoded: "Sure I can help you out, which way did you come in? [missed a few words] Damn Skippy".  Music interspersed with SSTV up to 0136Z tune out. 

Which way did I come in?  Judging by the signal, which was good to downright booming at times, I'd say I came in from your north, but that I didn't have far at all to travel!  SINPO 54354.  Thanks for the show!  Do you do the old-fashioned paper QSL thing at all?

Just to be sure there's no confusion, it was Dread Zeppelin, a reggae Led Zep tribute band with an Elvis impersonator on lead vocals.
