Nice shout out to Dimbulb and kilokat7 by Pandora at 0235z.

Unfortuantely, the Chinese OTHRs are starting to rise out of the noise, so I will likely not hear anything more across the band tonight.

Some weak carrier is audible in Kiev. May be some another (or spurious) signal.

Checked the radio & had a carrier & a tiny bit of audio. Played around with AM, USB, preamp, etc. and went back to USB & the carrier was gone, so either fade out or QRT at around 0300.

Thanks for the show, even if I didn't really hear anything!

Audio first noted here around 0237z on the SDR recording - extremely faint at first, then getting better over time. Up to about S5 at 0248z with an ID during one of the peaks, then into Bowie "Let's Dance". Off at 0300z.
