Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

Ah! A fellow homebrewer! I had a brewing book from the U.K., circa 1970, that included an ale with fruitcake as a major ingredient.

You can't do anything else with it, you might as well ferment it, and drink the result.

Ian didn't harm you and yours, did it?
