I heard you playing some Doors but I was getting SSB interference. When it died down the signal was fair and the audio was good. I had you on 3 KIWI SDR's, two of Chris's, both the 58 ft. TFD and the 120 ft. TFD, and one in Western PA. w/ what the owner says is "A large loop". The last one is usually the best for Stateside ops, but this afternoon it was the worst.

The bands are acting funny. I could see the carrier for Indy Radio on 6931 on both of Chris's SDR's. It's based in Southern Spain and runs 15 watts, it doesn't normally show up until a couple of hours after dark.
