Fair signal coming in directly here northeast of Seattle ...

0104 UTC: "Mean Street" by Van Halen.
0106 UTC: Fart sound effects.
0108 UTC: Big interference whistling sound, then a synth-pop song that Shazam won't ID for me.
0112 UTC: "Hold in the Sky" by Black Sabbath.
0116 UTC: Back to the farts for a moment, then "N.I.B. (Alternative Mix)" by Black Sabbath.
0117 UTC: Quick SSTV, then back to Sabbath.
0125 UTC: Some SSB distortion on the music here as the signal fades in and out a bit.
0130 UTC: SSTV again.

Thanks for the music, Skippy!

0112 2 Black Sabbath tunes, SSTV (bone tower with "Skippy Radio").  I was in and out after that doing stuff in the house, however signal had faded to almost nothing by 0205.

S6 initially and slowly deteriorating thereafter.
