11635 2130 UTC  HM01 transmitting two different recordings at the same time.  One was a few seconds ahead of the other but copy was bad with all the cross talk.  I could pull more copy by going to USB but still roug.  It seemed one of the tapes had different number groups than the other.

Don't watch this like I used to, but increasingly I am convinced they seldom, if ever, send any real traffic.
