0358Z RTN on air 6924.7 AM playing theme music...signal S8 to 9, lots of fading
0411Z dead air, carrier still on
0416Z audio back, playing country music
0920Z voice ID
0921Z Allan Johnson, Going Country, appears to be a country music night tonight
0433Z voice announcement, confirms it's country music night, going to try to play a lot of Canadian content
0443Z still in there...band very unstable now with some auroral flutter, signal still S7 to 8 and, oh, did I mention the static crashes...they're really starting to build giving RTN a lot of competition
0456Z Guitars, Cadillacs and Hillbilly Music woohoo!!
0458Z voice announcemnt and ID
0508Z Still holding at S7-8 but the static is incredible tonight, copy getting pretty rough on the west coast of NA
0518Z RTN still going playing Eagles, Hotel California but I'm shutting the radio off due to intense static crashes.
Thanks for being on and doing a great show, RTN

Near constant static making reception tough tonight.  Signal started out as just a faint carrier and has now risen to intelligible audio with ID at 0442 along with country/western style music.
