Give Us This Day Our Daily SK01

17436 PSK31 in progress at 1708 UTC. Began like clockwork at 1700 with 10x 11111, missed some of callup due to operator stupidity (mine, not theirs), middle message is NNTWI, 3rd GTWGI. The signal is strong s7-9 but with frequent deep fades. The audio is way overdriven for PSK31 with heavy distortion causing missed characters at times.

UPDATE 1751 UTC: The signal cut abruptly without the usual 10x 22222 at 1730, back up at 1733 in mid-message, still going at 1052, much later than normal.
