21:43 UTC - Monitoring via the HFU KiwiSDR. Good readable with Christmas program;
21:46 UTC - Station ID;
22:00 UTC - Good readable via my remote receiver in Toronto, Ontario Canada (RSPduo | Barker & Williamson antenna);
22:30 UTC - SSTV;
22:32 UTC - Sign-off, Wildfire interval signal and end of broadcast;
22:35 UTC - Carrier off.

Good to hear Ball Smacker Radio on-air as Friday night propagation as of late has been poor to my location.

Thank you for the special Boxing Day show.
