Good signal on 6285.045. Nice rock heard. Signal dropped suddenly at 0130 utc. No idea what is going on. Thanks for the broadcast.

Wiggling connections at the headphone plug fixed a bad connection, and the signal jumped to S9 with dips to S8. Good sounding audio now.

Rock City isn't in Russia, it's above Chattanooga,TN. on top of Lookout Mountain on the Georgia side of the state line. Didn't that op's folks take him to "See Rock City" on the way to Florida when he was kid? There were hundreds of signs that pointed the way there. They could have saved him the shame of sticking it in Putinstan as an adult.

Anyone remember Natalee Holloway? She was from near Rock City, grew up in a subdivision on top of Lookout Mountain. She decided to go to Aruba and she's never seen again. Why? You can't see danger coming on a flat island, but you can see it coming from 5 states away on top of Lookout Mountain. The girl was out of her natural element, Deliverance Country.

Halftime is over, I've got a basketball game or three to watch. This is the best 3 weeks of the year.
