I managed to record from the evening of the 3rd to the evening of the 4th - with a couple of hours gap in the early hours of the 4th. Much of the time I beamed east.

The hourly rate was well under 100/hr at the most intense time - but were quite productive for identifiable signals. Logs can be seen on FMList
