About S5 signal here, noise at S3 so not bad. Playing something with lots of mandolin and fiddle @ 0004z.  Frequent ID's and email addy.
He mentioned the artist but I missed it ( I believe he said the artist was from North Dakota).
Thanks for the show!

If I didnt have so much static crash activity, it would be a decent signal into GA. I can hear music, but the t-storm static is way up there. Signal is approx S3, static crashes over S5.
0013z

Appears to be fiddle music....or similar

Heard a shoutout for Ohio at 0014
