Signal is up & down and the audio drops out at times. I have a high noise level tonight from electrical storms north of me.
0129 - music, "Day Oh" (strong signal - +20 dB / S9)
0131 - music but unintelligible (signal dropped down into my S9 noise level)
0132 - no audio
0138 - audio is back with more music but too weak
0146 - music, "Mr. Sandman" with whistling sound effects
0149 - signal now gone

SDR recording catch. First noted at 0113z.  At 0119z and 0121z I heard a snippet of the "Fruitcake" pirate from last December. Off 0149z.
