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 Sad

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

0308 Hearing a little "thump thump thump" type music..

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

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!
