« on: March 02, 2022, 1814 UTC »
1813 - ION Radio ID into Neil Young's Out On The Weekend  S7/8 SIO 433-444
           Was just about to ask if anyone else had that carrier ;D
1816 -  Great audio, with moderate, fadey QRN here.
1822 - "India Oscar November..." ID, Love it.
1823 - Just realized how much Liam Gallagher sounds like Norman Smith in that chorus  ;D, QRN picking up a bit now.
1835 - ID, Lady Love Me George Benson
1850 - Marooned Pink Floyd, S8/9, SIO 434
1855 - "This is ION Radio...India Oscar November..." ID, into Shiver George Benson
1900 - Starting some moderate fades here now. Kiss You All Over Exile
1903 - No carrier.

Thanks, ION Radio! Always kickass.

18:48 UTC - Weak and barely readable. I get a bit of the carrier and occasionally can hear some music break through;
19:00 UTC - Conditions are improving slightly. Still weak but audio is now discernible;
19:03 UTC - Nothing else heard and carrier is off.
