Clear signal @ S9 here in the woods.

Good reception here in the woods of NW Florida.  S5-S7 with little interference.

Weak, but clear signal here in the woods of NW Florida.  Didn't move the needle of my R70's S meter off zero.  Using the built in preamp brought it to about S4.  Not too much static tonight.

Weak signal into NW Florida.  Almost obliterated by lightning crashes.

Seems like WDDJ was widely heard.  I'd just like to add that the show was heard here in the woods of NW Florida with a signal of S3-S5, no interference, and minimal fading.  Only slight static crashes.

Only S1-S3 in the woods of NW Florida.  Even at that, the noise level was so low, S1 gave a very readable signal.  Static crashes were present, but low in amplitude.

S9+ in the woods of NW Florida.  Very minor fading with static crashes having little effect.  No noticeable interference.  I look forward to the shows.

I also say thanks for the replies.  As a swl from way back, I've always measured signal strength as Token does.  I've gotten away from using SINPO or RST codes, but will go back to using them if station ops would rather have them.

Storms passed through.  S3-5 static crashes almost obliterated RML's signal which hardly moved my s-meter.  The longer I listened past 0300, the better conditions became though.

Thought I could faintly hear music, but I wasn't sure.  Signal didn't even move my S meter.

Thought reception would be poor with lots of static crashes affecting am reception badly, but when I switched to usb on 6925, RML was there with a good S5 signal here in NW Florida.

Reception down a little from last night here in NW Florida.  Signal strength still about S5, but static crashes are more frequent, making the operator more difficult to understand.   Music came through ok though.  Was surprised by what seemed to me to be a quick 73 and signoff at 0327.

Steady S5 signal here in NW Florida.  Minimal fading, heard well with little disturbance from static crashes.  I'm older than most of you, so I don't know the songs played.  I heard the shoutouts and various email addys given.  enjoyed the show!

Heard again out here in the woods. Signal was about S3 with considerable frequent static crashes.   Quite listenable though until sign off at about 0407.

Also heard here in NW Florida.  Clear signal with very slow fading, varying between S1 & S4.  Thanks for the show!
