21:37 UTC - Nice S7 signal. Cutting through the interferance on the band using the loop antenna;
21:48 UTC - "Memorial broadcast ... doing it off the cuff", followed by shout-out to HFU listeners;
22:09 UTC - Just hum for audio, lost the music;
22:11 UTC - DJ returns, "that what happens when you walk away ...", appologies for the dead air, playlist resumes;
22:20 UTC - Waterfall image (sorry, I did not have the decoder running);
22:32 UTC - Shout-outs to HFU listeners;
23:03 UTC - More shout-outs to HFU listeners. Fading of the band is starting to occur;
23:23 UTC - Station ID. Conditions are improving, continuing with Ozzy and Crazy Train;
00:00 UTC - Station is still coming in well to my location;
00:05 UTC - Station ID: Radio 48
00:11 UTC - Suddenly completely lost the signal.

Thanks for the Sunday afternoon / early evening broadcast.

Got it here in CT on the wire antenna.  It is a poor signal.  I can just hear the music.  Can not identify anything.  Thanks for the show.   The song is the Star Spangled Banner.
