(unid)- 6925.2 AM 2309-2331 4/20/08 SIO=141. Prgm of sketches and apparently
some classical mx at the start. Very poor level, and thus difficult to copy,
given the weak signal. The xmtr appeared to be somewhat undermodulated,
since the carrier was louder than the received modulated audio was.
I unfortunately failed to copy an ID. (Zeller-OH)
