18:57 UTC - Loud and clear. Very nice +10 signal level with atmospheric type music, 4.2 kHz wide;
19:09 UTC - Station ID;
20:20 UTC - Still has a good +10 signal although the audio is slightly over modulated and distorted;
20:45 UTC - Station ID with DJ Dick Weed. Audio sounds good on the mic;
21:50 UTC - Now weak and unreadable. I can hear some voices and music in the background but that is about it.

Thank you for the extended show.
