12 October notes

No log: something went wrong and I have no data to show, so a written observation follows.

Music started right on time, stereo balance issue has been fixed. Logging other DRM broadcasts today has shown ionospheric conditions to be down from yesterday: so far this one looks good. SDC still showing CBC's message with wrong frequency and time.

A second, analog receiver shows 9790 coming at S9+20dB here.

Starting at about 0029Z, a series of very short audio interruptions began. They sound like source problems, not transmitter faults. Signal data doesn't show any drops or interference. Stopped by 0042Z.

SNR was at least 16 to 18 db the entire broadcast. Generally the signal was quite steady, although slightly down in SNR from yesterday.
