Nice S-5 signal into Northern Canada over S-0 noise. Audio sounds pretty good for SSB music.

I tuned in to hear the Green Day tune. Tough copy on a noisy band in Northern Canada. About S-4 over S-3 noise. Minor fades. But great to hear! Hopefully we'll hear much more under better winter conditions.

Had good copy in Northern Canada. I also found the signal stronger at the beginning then at the end. Always terrific to hear an old friend!

I can't speak for those south or east in North America; but I generally have the best luck working Europe  from North West North America on 14mhz. from about 2200GMT to about 0200GMT. Low power should be no problem, although AM and low power can be a tough combination.

Wayne was my hero. I picked my ham call (***NSD) in honor of him, W2NSD. The editorials are still a hoot to read and I've built many projects from the magazine. I have every issue of 73 on CD, as well as an index. I'm pretty sure that CD collections of Ham Radio are available as well.
Wayne Greene and Tom Kneitel made ham radio as a hobby an appealling thing.

I can only hear a carrier on SSB and occasional bits of audio but not enough for a copy. Sigh, its a new one for me and I'd like to hear them better.

Hearing them about S5 with thunder static. Always great to hear an old friend!

We have 5 (!!!) cats, and have hours of cat stories. One device our vet gave us resembles a hypo needle; you put your pill in it, gently pop open the cats mouth by squeezing in on it's cheeks, and pop the pill into the back of it's throat. Easy Peasy. However, we have one cat that WILL shred you if you try to bathe it, and one cat that will sit peacefully in a tub of water and wait there for you while you go get another coffee.

In no particular order:
Kraftwerk - Radioactivity
Rory Gallagher - Live
Deep Purple - Live in Europe (NOT Live in Japan!)
Ted Nugent - Double Live Gonzo
Scorpions - Virgin Killer
UFO - Live

There's various individual songs I like but the question was about albums.

I literally caught the last minute of the broadcast. I heard the OM announcer, then off. About S-5 with storm static.

I hear them about S-5 with storm static. Always great to hear an old friend!

Got electronic music in, about S-7.

I presume it's them judgeing by the great audio. Got Led Zep "Whole Lotta Love" on right now. True S-9 signal with minor thunderstorm crashes.

Puff pieces, for sure

I believe that the term is Same Sex Publication Couples *sniggers*

You mean like what Brits call cigarettes?
