Good reception some fades on the trusty PL 880 while back in the not-so-frozen northeast.  Annual broadcast on North Frisian Holiday to the diaspora. North Frisian(NF)/German(G)/English(E) service.

1600 Carrier detected
1601 Suddenly up in mid-sentence, OM speaking in NF or G
1603 OM continues to talk, reception improving
1606 Music just above noise floor
1608 Reception buried by noise now
1613 Reception just making it over noise with music, just checked Milford PA sdr - not significantly better.  :'(
1620 Reception improving with fades, peaks very good.  YL singing in G or NF.

About SINPO 44344 here, using my MLA-30 loop to fight local QRN (the main reason for the low N mark). Much better signal than last year's.
