Just heard an ID at 0000 UTC of Radio Vixen International by a computer generated YL voice.  This was followed by a samba song by Astrud Gilberto.  S9/+10 dB in NY.  Audio sounds a bit over driven.

S9+ right at sign-on with the instrumental, then a fast drop in signal level below my very high noise floor tonight.

S9+ at first, then a big drop down to S5 or so. The band went long early tonight.

Recorder catch:

6925 AM (rx in USB) SIO 434-222

Started off with a nice signal then quickly dropped in strength & eventually hovered barely above the noise floor - similar details as others.

Audio (00:46z-01:04z): http://archive.org/download/ShortwavePirateRadioCont/RadioVixenInternational6925Am-usb0046z-0104z11-20-12.mp3

Thanks RV! :)
