No sign of Ball Smacker here at 0118, I'm in the skip zone I guess!
There is a carrier noted though.

0120 Occas bits of audio on peaks now.

Signal seems fair to good here in Orlando but there is some kind of RFI blowing out the signal for the most part. Maybe a bad street light.
Can here music at 0129, not sure what it is though.
