0123 Wandered into the middle of the broadcast.  S9 including the noise.  Variable signal 30 to 45 dB above the noise (-100 dBm)

Oh, and gone at 0137!

Thanks for the broadcast,

Hey Ct Yankee.....hope you had a nice trip out west......and just say no to Miley! Prefer Neil Young's "Wrecking Ball", or Emmylou Harris cover of the same!

CT Yankee goes deep at 0204 UTC and scores with Miley!

The things I do for radio. Pulled a temporary coax run from the radio area to the den to hookup the 148' LoG antenna.

SINPO 34333 at 0143z. Still noisy right now, but less fades and a better copy. A few seconds of pesky activity at 0145z, but it appears they QSY'd or whatever.

....

Conditions seem to be improving. Peaking S9+10 and ~36dB SNR. SINPO 54444 at 0154z with ID and website. Intermittent static crashing persists.

....

Peaking S9+10 and ~42dB+ SNR at 0210z.

---

Again, thanks for the show! :)
