SDR recording catch, fairly weak signal, not as strong as the earlier SSB.

Recorder catch:

6925 (rx in USB) SIO 322-323

Caught Red Mercury Labs a couple of times last night with fair signal & fading conditions.

02:44z-02:47z  On with "...six..nine..two..five..."  Sounded like there was a QSO near the end, but couldn't make out who it was, BOR maybe?

03:29z-03:36z Edmund Fitzgerald, ID & off

Thanks RML! :)

Heard the second iteration of "Edmund Fitz" here 0329 - 0336 UTC, and this was at a better level and quality than the first.

It seems as if the QSO at 0247 was indeed with BOR, but his end was a little weak and this is just tentative.

Thanks RML!
