point reyes weather station on shortwave

In early August 2009, I was tuned to 8764 kHz using SSB, where the weather station NMC was broadcasting. NMC is located in Point Reyes, California. I recorded this short video of the reception with my Eton E5.

Tuning the BFO to make the voice sound good is particularly hard with this broadcast, which has a fair amount of radio silence.
