Anyone hear from D705, D706, or D708 today? Went through the Broadcastify archives for today and didn't hear anything. Wanted to make sure I didn't miss them.

I haven't heard anything for D705 nor D706 yet as of 08:25. Yesterday: D706 was posted as being at Howell at 16:33 & D705 was arriving inside of Grand Rapids at 09:00 - probably hear them a little later on today.
