0116   I can hear this too. USB best, S5
0118   Climbing in strength, modulation much better.. almost sound like  an old Mike Oldfield tune.
0121 New sound effect mix.. receive arrays put this SW of me
0122 ID, but didn't catch it
0127  Off, back on less strength.. "Deputy Dan Colouring book"...from old Firesign Theatre album, Dear Friends, I think
  (Strangely enough I have all of the Firesign  Theater albums.. one of my most valuable possessions)
 0142  break in music, back on with an Oboe medely , maybe a little low for an oboe.
0145  Hitting S8-9 now. Very good sig.

RE: BW.. just fired up the R390A.....excellent on 8 KHz BW, not much different on 16 KHZ.. big change from 4 KHZ. That's a decent transmitter. S9+  with OCF dipole.

Great radio show !

Can hear an AM signal on 6920. S3 and down in the noise occasionally.. music.. can't quite get the gist yet. Been there for last 15 minutes or so. K9AY  helpful in West direction.

Maybe slightly better at 2320. Best SNR on DADFA ( dual active delta flag array).
Building at 2323

Blondie.. Number one.. voiceover at 2325

Still not great at 2341. DSP processing on IC7700  slight improvement over HDSDR and SDR-IQ.
Not what you call a booming signal. Still hear a bit of signal at 2343.

2357  Don't stop Believing
0007  Steve Miller Band  Abradabracadabra (oops, not 2307 !)

S6-S7 in Halifax this morning.. quite decent on R390A with ">fi" amp and speakers, good on assortment of antennas.
