 Was getting noisy at S7 on the indoor loop. Storms have passed so I switched to the outdoor wire. Now S9+18.
   I hate having to use the indoor antenna.

Tuned in at 0145utc on Brookfield WI sdr with fair S9 to S9+20 signal, Roy Orbison "in dreams", Everly brothers "dream", seems to be a dream theme program, thanks for the nice tunes, at 0149 "Mr. Sandman", at 0152 tuned in locally with fair/poor S9+20 signal over horrendous S9+10 neighborhood noise caused by several neighbor's uverse service which sends 100mb/sec over ordinary pairs of wires, off at 0223 after announcement and piano IS.

I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires.
