Ball Smacker Radio with a S7 signal.



Started to decode the SSTV image on 4030. About two/thirds of the way down the image I switched to 6960 because of the noise on 4030. It made a big difference.

I haven't heard the ID yet, but the signal is coming through pretty good. Not extremely loud, but it's there and doing pretty good. Thanks for the broadcast!

A little weak at times, but mostly is a good signal. The Ballsmacker Radio ID came across very loud and clear. Thanks for the show!!!

4030 is much better, 6960 is almost lost cause here.
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

6960 S7 into SE Michigan with some adjacent QRM. 4030 is less readable on my end due to a higher noise floor.

Thanks for the broadcast!
