Just enough time to catch the sign on before I leave for work.

Dickweed talking about lousy propagation for the last show, so repeating some of the same material.

S9+10 signal.  Wish I could stick around to hear the rest.

Thanks RFW!

S9 and excellent audio, a little heavy on the reverb.
"The Less I Know the Better" by Tame Impala @ 0138.
Thanks for the show, Mr. DJDW!

Still S9 @ 0223 with shoutouts.  May have turned the verb down too much now.
Sounding great here, though.

Steady S9 @ 0252 with "I Feel You" by Depeche Mode

S9+10 @ 0300, opening up the filters to 5 khz.  "Eventually"

Caught s/on @ 0133 on 6945 USB with a national anthem from ?  Replay of an earlier show due to Mother Nature  not allowing him on the air on his last attempt.  So far decent signal/audio.
Just a boy with his radio and some wire.

Sounding awesome this evening Dickweed with a S8-9 here! Like the echo in the background. If you are doing requests, how about some Green Day comrade? ;D Thanks for all the great new tunes this evening my friend! Also hearing you on the Twente SDR with a S4-5, just above the noise floor. :D Still hearing ya just fine. Thanks for playing "American Idiot"! Fits a lot of people out there.

6945 USB
0154z: Music and RFW ID just barely audible through QRN.  Just a bit of heterodyne QRM, probably local RFI.
0257z: Big signal improvement.  Just tuned in again, may be the best signal I've caught so for from RFW.  Reading listener email.
0300z: Firefly and Shazam say: Tame Impala "Eventually"
0305z: Bueller?  The Beat "Mirror in the Bathroom"
0309z: Chattering about radio gear, signal faded a bit again, so only able to copy a little.
0313z: Off or faded out.  Good while it lasted, thanks!
