S9 in KCMO  with Love me do at 22:21z & piano tune with op talk & shout outs. Great signal on my portable sat 750.

Signal is actually 20 over S9 at times but is a little fadey. 22:30 op talk about crappy music.

Tuned in at 2225utc, fair/poor sig, heard beetles "love me do" (yes I misspelled it), discussion of old pop artists incl Tom Jones, tune by T Jones.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com
