You beat me to the cocktail, Larry!

As I was getting ready to post...

Don't know when they started, but at 2:30 this afternoon I noted
IBOC "roar" from about 1.2445-1.2535 and 1.2685-1.2775.
Strangely, 1.254-1.268 appears "roarless" (unlike 'BZ's IBOC "roar",
which presses tightly around the main analog modulation).
The main (analog) modulation (compression?) seems awfully weak, too.
