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

02:01 UTC - Good readable with fading ... and here I have been waiting on 4030 kHz with no signal. Even the live stream is monitoring 4030 kHz with no signal;
02:18 UTC - Big fade out period, just went to unreadable, almost no carrier.

It’s clearly in AM here in michigan — “everybody Dance@ and ‘do you wanna dance’. …

3+5444 and getting stronger. 
DXing *either* from:
MI -- South Central Lower Michigan with a 25 m randomwire and a LOT of local noise!
or
MI2 -- the tip of Michigan's Thumb with a 100 metre longwire and much quieter conditions.  Radios can be either an SPR-4 or IC-R71A or SDRplay

Enough carrier tonight to get a lock on Sync AM direct but no audio coming through at this noise level. Nothing on 4030 at all.

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.

S-9 plus signal on the western Great Plains. "Save The Last Dance For Me". A ton of band noise. Must be a lot of wind out that way tonight, as usual.
