Just a het here. :'(

0136- 6.960 with Elton John: Your Song. Enthusiastic OM at 0137 w/"Iroquis Radio" iD: Strong and pretty clear here in NE MA. Mentioned "70's show tonight." (45444)

Hearing here in NE MA on 6.865 since 0040, with what sounded like Amy Winehouse, followed by a brief Mix Radio jingle, Than Al Green's Lets Stay Together. Incredibly strong and clear signal! This may be the closest to a perfect pirate signal that I've ever
heard. More promos and an actual honest to God address for QSLs, followed by The Allman Bros.

0059 - Brief YL ID and Free with All Right Now. Signal is still pounding in now. I'd chuck the headphones, but my sleeping wife across the hall may not be as interested in this broadcast as I am.

0110 - Hot Radio Shortwave ID by OM. Signal has quickly and decisivily deteriorated here. Weak now with  more noise.

Hearing this since 0045 with pop music and occasional and brief OM talk. Signal has been gradually improving. Now fair-good with no interference, moderate-minor noise and some fading, but not severe. This has the feel and sound of a Euro, but understanding the brief announcements has been just out of reach.

2355 - Rock w/OM voclals.
2359 - Brief talk by OM (Dickweed?) with "Whatever" and into a cover of Love Will Keep Us Together."
0004 - Dickweed with commentary on last song "by The Caulfields," and announced "Here is Cage The Elephant with Skin & Bones."

Great signal in NE MA! No Headphones necessary. Mild noise, sometimes spiking up, and a steady signal with good clean audio.

0024 - SINPO = 24232; Ocassional OM announcer between old-sounding pop standards. Lots of noise here tonight, but I haven't heard them yet this winter, so the signal is at least getting through much better.

Tuned in at 1808 with Tull and Aqualung, then Broken Wings. Very good signal here...headphones not necessary. Nice to listen while I work. Read the HFU at lunch as always, and couldn't believe it!

Thank you Relay Station!

2003 UTC - Playing Bowie - Ziggy Stardust

Friday afternoon is usually the best time of the work week, but this one has been even better with this much appreciated broadcast. Thanks especially for the Moody Blues songs! Signal is unbelievably steady and quite strong.

FYI: Unlike many MW stations these days, they QSL!

0048: Just a het here in NE MA . No audio to be found however.

Hearing here in NE MA since 0133 with OM talk, but fair-weak with LOTS of noise, though sometimes the noise fades out and a mild signal is evident. Music at 0139: Rock w/OM vocals. Too much noise at my QTH! :'(

Hearing here as well, since 0200. Very strong signal, little noise, and nice clear audio. "You are listening  to Ballsmacker Radio," followed by Eric Clapton with After Midnight.
0203: Prince: 1999 (Signal is booming here in NE MA). Two light jazz tunes followed.
0215: ID and announcer mentioned that if you guess the theme, you get the special QSL. Email given as Ballsmacker@protonmail.com
0216: U2 New Year's Day (still a killer signal)
0224: Ballsmacker ID, and bowling pin strike sound effect.

Heard here since 0110, with Tom Petty, an extended OM talk, and The B-52s. Fair signal, but tons of noise here. Talking again at 0120.
0128 - My Old School - Stealy Dan It took a minute or two of knob-tuning to get t clear enough to ID this song. The noise totally overwhelms voice here, but not the music, though its tough copy. (SINPO: 252320. Brief announcement then a song with a female vocalist at 0124. More talk and music followed. Tough copy continues.
0141 - Little Feat song. Signal has strenghtened considerably and noise decreased a bit too. OM talk at 0145.

Received mine yesterday! Thanks Ballsmacker!

Listening since 2352 with music and talk by OM and many "WTF Radio" IDs. Good but very soisy here. 0001 - Unsure if they are off or if it is some local noise killing the FQ.
