Pretty steady S9 into Boston Burbs

2246 UTC Some kind of talk
2247 UTC Cisco Kid

Off the Air after We Gotta get out of This Place

{Thanks and good luck to the mods straightening out these 6925 threads. I hopped in near the end and I'm not sure what the 'ell I was listening to.}

Not much above the noise floor here. Can make out music, but can't ID anything.

S9+20 into N. suburban Boston. Steady signal with great audio.

0010 Mohammed's Radio; Warren Zevon

(Now a little QSB as I was typing this, but still a great signal.)

Just catching the tail end, with Stone Soul Picnic.

Awesome S9 signal into N. suburban Boston. You make USB sound good!

In Northern VT the USB signal was squashing Ballsmacker.

Just came back on at 0129. Not sure exactly what the  program is, but is strongly ball-centric. Someone is going BALListic.

Okay signal into Northern VT. Just using a portable with built in telescopic whip, but sounds good. Couldn't copy at all until Wolverine graciously moved to  6950.

0032 Free Your Mind, En Vogue
0036 Always on my Mind, Willie Nelson

Nice signal into northern VT.  Listening on a portable with just the built-in telescoping antenna and it sounds great.

0018 ID and switch to 6950, with a little more Mills Bros
0019 Sounds like Chuck Berry
0022 Hello Josephine
0024 Hard Hearted Hannah

Great programming. Thanks Wolverine.

Decent but not strong signal into Northern VT this evening. S6 maybe? Can't tell for sure 'cause I'm sitting outside in the dark with a wine, my wife, and a portable without an S meter, and I'm more interested in enjoying the programming than logging details. Thanks, Ballsmacker!
