S6-S8 with some fading, using C-QUAM stereo, sounds great during the signal peaks with the bandwidth opened up. B52's Channel Z at 0227.

Very weak into Maine tonite

Left the recorder running and the signal came up substantially after 0240 or so. Sound like about s7 or so.  Nice Cyndi Lauper block.
