2022 "Too Late Baby", good reception. Just returned home, listening to ION Radio on 6925 AM for their last song and sign off. Glad to have a station on 6865 usb after ION. I would guess this is mix on 6865. No ID heard yet.
2035 Good tunes, still no ID. Sounding great. Audio about 6K.
2041 Down to S6 now.
2042 Robo YL intro with Andrew Yoders Hobbie Broadcasting Radio show #2.

Strong USB signal S9 here in Central Wisconsin. Hobby Broadcasting Radio ID at 2243 UTC. Clear perfect copy. Switched to 6875 USB later for the end of the Hobby Broadcasting program. After program end the actual relay was on Mix Radio International. Their ID was just before OTA.

Excellent signal. Jumped to 6975U, I guess because of Rainer's mention of QRM from the Chinese regional on 6865.

My apologies for the hum during Chris' interview. I had the laptop in a different location & it wasn't good! I tried to eliminate the noise after the fact. It definitely helped, but the hum is really noticeable
