0255z Red Mercury Labs doing fairly well in NH tonight, S7 with S9 static crashes but not too bad...

Always nice to turn on the radio and find you on... I hope conditions out on the sea aren't bad and your power and propulsion problems have been dealt with.

0305z ID, Thanks RML (good to hear all systems are up and running)
0340z ID, someone shouted "EMAIL" on frequency just before, so RML obliged redmercurylabs@yahoo.com
0347z ID, RML will be heading to Barcelona, Spain (but will miss the Iron Maiden concert)

Hmm, Spike sneaking a treat from below decks ----

Spike bears a striking resemblance to a local groundhog of renown. Blood will tell.

I never knew the critters took to the the sea?

0401Z, just tuned in. Very loud! Playing Iron Maiden - Stranger In a Strange Land. 20 over S9.    
0405Z, gave a shout out to me! Thank you RML! Talking about Iron Maiden tour dates.
0406Z, now playing Black Sabbath - The Mob Rules.
0409Z, reading an email, I didn't get the name of the person who emailed RML. RML said he would do one more song and then say 73's.
0411Z, now playing Motorhead - Ace of Spades.
0414Z, off the air.
0415Z, sounds like a brief QSO between Red Mercury Labs and Turtlehead Radio.
0416Z, now off.

Only S1-S3 in the woods of NW Florida.  Even at that, the noise level was so low, S1 gave a very readable signal.  Static crashes were present, but low in amplitude.
