Had it in pretty good for the Beatles tune; about S-3 over S-0 noise. Gradually got weaker. Great to hear some activity in Northern Canada, though.

I can hear faint music but not enough for an ID. Dang, this is a new one for me.

I had power supply trouble with the JRC 525, both the R71a and R1000 were trouble free.

You can get extension poles for painting that are sturdy fiberglass. I'm not sure what the longest are but I've used ones that go about 25 feet. Any large industrial painting supply place should have what you need.

I had a R1000 when they were new. Liked it. Got A JRC 525. Love it. Got a Icom R71A. Love it. There is nothing wrong with the R1000, and it is way cheaper then the rest. The JRC 525 is built like a Swiss watch and is a beauty but expensive. The Icom R71A is about as expensive, built like a tank, and I think works at least as well if not better then the JRC.
But my current love? An Icom R9000. None of the others are even close to it but it costs about 6 times as much as the R71A or 525.

Just tuned in time to hear a OM ann "Radio GaGa Shortwave ****sideband" ID, then into Allannis Morrissete song. My first time ever hearing this one! Freakin' awesome!
Signal about S5 over S1 noise with minor fades. Nice sideband audio.
Please QSL if possible.

Very nice copy into northern Canada tonight. OM announcer  "...into another song on WDDR" then played a old time blues number.
My first time logging this one, I hope to hear you more often! Thanks for the show.

Fair copy for the Chris Cross song. Strongest of the 3 stations I can hear here now. About S-5 over S-1 noise with QSB.

Can hear the carrier on SSB, on AM I can hear bits and bursts of music. Lots of thunderstorm static here, but still great to hear you!

Perhaps he just wants people to eat his shorts. I know I do.

It's Radio True North! Thanks for the shout out! Always great to hear an old friend. The killer signal should have been my first clue.
