Strong signal. S5 to 6 on the west coast playing music I don't recognize.
0432Z Voice ID, Red Mercury Labs Testing on board the RV Red Mercury
0433Z seems to have stopped transmitting
Good evening RML, nice strong signal tonight
0434Z back on air with voice ID but audio is breaking up quite badly
0438Z off air, something happened between first and second transmission to cause the audio to break up badly
Nice to hear you in there RML..hope you get that audio issue sorted out...BOR

I tuned in about 0428Z. Caught what I thought was tail-end of transmission ending at about 0431Z. Then they came back with very distorted signal. Another station called them on frequency (Radio ??) to tell them they were distorting. I think they're gone now at 0438. Signal was decent but thunderstorm QRN is S9 here tonight.

Caller was possibly Radio Whatever?
