I think it's gone. At least I hope it is. To quote the late George Zeller, "Quite possibly the worst thing I've ever heard on the radio." Bad audio, wimpy music. Work on your audio and play something loud and snotty.

Nope, wrong, they've come back up over the noise with that wimpy music. Get back in the noise!
I guess I'm "lucky"? I haven't been able to detect it for over 30 minutes.
NEXT!
QSL to umst777@yahoo.com would be greatly appreciated!

2342 w/music
Solid S5, peaking towards S9 at times. Audio is strong but a bit muffled.
2357 WIND ID, sounds like a voice off those old Speak and Spell machines back in the 80's

Better signal on the Kiwi in Westminster,MD. w/ 250ft, V-beam pointed northeast. (I thought you guys were Yankees by your funny accents.) You have got to do something about that audio if you're going to do this regularly, sometimes it's too low, other times it cuts out, other times it's overdriven, and it's full of static much of the time.
