 > Thanks, Glenn, for the reminder!  Surprisingly, reception is pretty 
good even on the west coast where it's only 5:00 PM, many hours away 
from our LSS.  All in Spanish, of course.  Mentions of Europa and 
Americas.  English at 00:02 with greetings.  QSL information and WRMI 
mentions.  Huge global audience, etc....  All this on 7730.  What's the 
beam again?   73,   Walt

Nice English ID for Ecos del Torbes (oldie, as they mention the 60 m 
band).  At 00:06 UTC.  73,  Walt

And immediately after the special broadcast was the DigiDX special, 
heard at very good level in Victoria, and fully decoded the various 
modes transmitted, along with the images.  For some reason, though, my 
Fldigi didn't automatically change the center frequency from the usual 
1500 to 2200, so I had to do it manually.  Everything else worked as 
advertised.  Nice image of the antenna farm at WRMI towards the end of 
the half-hour show at 00:56 UTC.

The timed recording worked. Now I can hear and decode what Walter reported:
