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

Absolute stud signal here in the Boston burbs at 0232z (2/25/23) on 4030 KHz. S9+. Excellent audio, cool tunes, vibing out here in the shack with some beer and just the light from some candles and the radios, and hi-fi speakers on the Anan 70000 for RX. Thanks Ballsmacker!

0203  Checked several times throughout the evening to 0232.  // 6960 AM. Adequate signal, although noisier than 6960.

S8.  Good signal although pretty noisy down here.

S9+10 with the KX4AZ KiwiSDR, signal strength the same as 6960 but less bandwidth and sounding louder (higher modulation).

0250 UTC-Hollywood Swinging by Kool & The Gang
