Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

From recording while I was eating Thanksgiving dinner: 2334 3 SSTV of wanted poster (presumably DB Cooper), "Radar Love", Intro. to Walter Chronkite giving a report of the hijacking of the aircraft DB Cooper took, country song then a couple of more rock / pop style songs (in a fade, so can't ID), 0000 dialogue between YL & OM drama - still not comprehensible), "The Ballad of DB Cooper" - Chuck Brodsky, into a monologue about stories, CBS tones and Evening news with Walter Chronkite with item on hyjacking of airliner and DB Cooper parachuting out into local news tag, "The Ballad of DB Coper" - Miriam Stone which fades out and broadcast presumably ends.

Fading in and out - inaudible to fair.

0000 Talk by OM/YL about mixing drinks...
0004 Ballad Of D.B. Cooper - Chuck Brodsky S9
0010 Talk about DB Cooper .... myths....
0011 News reports on DB Cooper ...
0012 Ballad Of D.B. Cooper - Miriam Stone ,,,
0018 off ..... There used to be a restaurant named D.B Cooper's in Nashua, NH

I think he died landing, maybe got stuck in a tree and died up there then his remains fell and were eaten, why would he leave 6K $??

That's always been my attitude towards him, Chris. In the Eastern mts. of my home state, they trained pilots and crews of bombers for potential action in Bavaria and mountainous areas of Central Europe. They lost planes by the dozens in those hilly forests training those crews. None of those planes or crews have been recovered in nearly 80 years, and they had flight plans for all of them. Those tall evergreen forests swallow men and machines as soon as they hit the canopy. I figure what's left of Cooper is impaled in the second story of a spruce, his bones part of a buzzard's nest.
