6925U 0036 Black Sabbath Wizard easily heard on Sony Porta-crap with whip indoors.

Did not hear but twas grunge.  Nirvana Tourette's. Play some more so I can tune in.

Darn.  I had it here too and it was so strong I had trouble determining mode.  Decided on 25U.  Misc music. Ran down to the PC. Tried a receiver in MO and gulch and gulch barely had it. By the time I got connected and everything to HFU it was no longer on.

6955am huge signal to IN.  10-15 > 9.  Seems to be Amway based content.  Talk of becoming an expert at what you do to be happy, propaganda, Amway song ...No ID the last 10 minutes that I caught. Ah am only retaining 30% of what ah hear so there may have been 3 IDs already.

Excellent signal 6925u to NE IN. ID 0255. "relics from WW2"  "waters of the Solomons"
Thanks for the broadcast Dr

I said DX-440 because it was the first real radio I had around late 80's.  It could be months between hearing and IDing a pirate on or around 7415. 
We had a piece of garbage Hallicrafters growing up in the 60's with a piece of wire out the back.  Tubes.  Did they work?  Well enough to fire up.  Yellowed mystery tuning dial.  Even more mysterious secondary horizontal tuning.  WWV if you were lucky.  A few knobs and switches that may or may not have functioned.  I couldn't tell.  It didn't catch on fire at least.  It wasn't enough to spark an interest until I was much older.  Got really interested once I got a Drake R8.

I tried a slinky dipole 10 years back.  No more love than a dipole same dimensions.  Probably no more than a chunk of wire same overall length.  Your mileage may vary so if you have the slinkys and space, by all means experiment. I have had stranger things work out well during the solar minimum.  Stuff that defied the books and interwebs.

Yep come on over.  I have been lurking for several years.  Keeping my mouth shut mostly this time around.  Wasn't sure about the original riff THIS side had with THAT side years ago, but having seen both for several years and last year becoming member on THIS side, well, grass is greener here.  Grass is actually dead on THAT side it appears having read general messages today.  Maybe no more.

CB channels...like they say...drivers DFing you and yellin ITS THE GUY IN THE RED TRUCK BLOWIN 4 PILS AND A YELLIN AT US and such within minutes.  Plus there are a zillion low power CBs making for a noise filled band.  You won't do much without hundreds of watts and a big base antenna. 
10 meters though is much clearer and chance of covering hundreds of miles is good with just tens of watts.  Don't even try a CB channel.  You just won't get out unless you become one of those crazy channel 6 southern guys and that would cost a lot of money.
