1828, a little over S5 here.  I can hear that there's music playing, but it's pretty much down to the noise level, occasionally fading in a little better.
1843  Woman singing.  I get about 10 seconds of clear audio and so far I don't know any of the songs.
1854  Woman singing, Priests?  Since 1850 it's been peaking at S7, but still only for about 10-20 seconds at a time.
1901 "California"  Now peaking at S9, but deep, deep fades still.

Logged in to my home setup from work on my lunch hour.

Weak signal, thought it was an image at first, but checked here and apparently it's real.

Rock selections, occasional fade-ins to decent level, mostly down in the noise.

Antenna: Heard on south-aimed DKAZ. (I'd get a much better signal if I were home and switched to another antenna, I'm sure!)
Radio: HF+ Discovery
Location: Goshen, northern Indiana
SDRs:  Perseus -- HF+ Discovery -- RSPdx
Antennas:  DKAZ -- Superloop (Conti) -- Belar loop
                  -- Vertical wire -- BOG/LOG (sometimes)
SW - MW; Listening and DXing.
