01:10 UTC - S8 signal to my location. Radio drama. Transmitting in wide sideband (3.2 kHz wide) and audio slightly overmodulated and distorted. There is DC in the audio causing distortion;
01:31 UTC - "You are listening to Ball Smacker Radio somewhere in the North East".
02:23 UTC - End of broadcast. Thank you for the show.

ID at 0217z. SINPO 34344. In the den right now so using just the 9' vertical. Nonetheless, good modulation and an easy copy as usual.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)
