Tuned in at 0251 on Traverse City MI sdr with poor noisy S7 to S9 signal, barely hear audio under the noise,
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

Sorry, lost mains power and the RX team lost Internet shortly into broadcast.

25W AM 4030, 15W AM 6960.  Emergency power.  Lost audio but never carrier.

Stream should be up now (thank you Starlink)

eQSLs on the way, sorry real busy here!
