0:00 6925 AM

I can hear definitely dance music beat but little else over the noise.  The sun is still up here in California (4:15pm), hopefully reception will get better as it sets.
 Its cool, I just strung my random wire over my tree so its higher and on the first test I get something.

While my OLD computer warmed up from 23:27 to now at 23:33 (no kidding). heard faint music and some initial talking. The signal is an abysmal S3-4 just above the noise floor here in Illinois.
23:39 heard OP talk and prersumed ID - into music - hopefully sig will pick up

Great to hear you again RTN!

Hearing Rush at 0135, ID at 0145.  Fair S7 signal with some pesk interference.  Very good audio.

Thanks RTN; looking forward to those frigid and quiet winter nights when RTN booms in above the noise here.

Pretty strong carrier here 0220 but unfortunately no audio :(

I think Dim Bulb is sucking all the audio into his antenna farm in NH before it crosses the border into Massachusetts!  ;)

Good job Robert, you must be getting trans polar reception. Frozen signals are known to travel farther before they thaw ;)

Reception got better as the sun went down but still fades in and out.

Blinded by the Light playing now

I enjoyed CCR and Led Zepplin earlier, and the B 52s!
