ION Radio 6954.8 AM 13:39 UTC 09 JANUARY 2022

13:39 UTC - UNID with weak but readable music, Terry Jacks - Season in the Sun;
13:43 UTC - Still have a good carrier but seems to have lost modulation;
13:45 UTC - Modulation returning with Paper Lace - The Night Chicago Died;
13:49 UTC - Albert Hammond - It Never Rains in Southern California;
13:54 UTC - Some audible voice but fading out. Something about time and space. An old fashion space radio docudrama with references to 1987;
14:22 UTC - "... you have just heard No Contact ... next week we have ..." then docudrama cut off and followed by music;
14:22 UTC - Station ID: "INDIA OSCAR NOVEMBER";
14:30 UTC - Station ID: "INDIA OSCAR NOVEMBER. This is ION Radio";
15:42 UTC - Station ID and end of broadcast.

Thank you for the morning show.

Note: Signal is pretty decent via the HFU 250 ft V Beam KiwiSDR.

"The Night Chicago Died" mixed in with the noise this morning at 1343 UTC.
1349 UTC - "It Never Rains in Southern California" at S6
1356 UTC - Show about space travel, but in and out of the noise too much to follow.
