1935 UTC Fairly solid carrier here but only bits of audio fading up to noise floor level
1939 UTC Sudden fade up to S4 with "All Right Now"-Free
1941 UTC "All Together Now"-Beatles (Deep fades and decent peaks)
1943 UTC OM said something, into "Who's Crying Now"-Journey (Had a very nice peak of S7 during the tune!)
1948 UTC "Love Is Here and Now You're Gone"-Supremes (Hitting S7 peaks and lighter fades)
1951 UTC YL with ID and email address for report that gets the theme, into "Right Now"-Van Halen
1956 UTC "Baby Now That I Found You"-The Foundations (S8 peaks now...awesome audio!)
1959 UTC YL with ID and pins dropping, into "I Can See Clearly Now"-Johnny Nash
2001 UTC "Not Now John"-Pink Floyd
2006 UTC YL with ID and pin fall, into "Hold Me Now"-Thompson Twins (Signal hitting full quieting....)
2011 UTC "What the World Needs Now"-Jackie DeShannon (Signal fading up and down)
2015 UTC Deep signal fade..."It's Now or Never"-Elvis Presley
2016 UTC Total fade out  :(

Thanks for the Memorial Day Weekend tunes with the theme "Now"  :)  Propagation does NOT seem to be listener friendly today  :(

Here's a link to my recording from 1948-2016 UTC Fade out:
