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

Tuned in approx 0025z

0031 "Ship of Fools" - World Party
0035 ID into "Don't Let's Start" - They Might Be Giants
0038 Non Stop Music into "Things Can Get Only Better" - Howard Jones

2332 - Rock song with male announcer.
2336 - "Hi I'm Phil Stevenson...and your listening to Radio 48." Rock song with OM vocals follows.
2338 - ID
2348 - Cigarette ad parody followed by a punkish song with OM vocals. Signal continies to be outstanding!
2352 - ID followed by "I Shot the Sheriff."

Very strong signal with no interference, very minimal noise (as little as ever occurs here in the winter), a steady signal, and no headphones necessary. SINPO=55444.
