Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

Look at the lightning map and weep. https://www.blitzortung.org/en/live_lightning_maps.php?map=30

Listening on an SDR in VT and it's noisy but we're doing it.

0233 - Waving a hand at you too. Pretty reasonable signal for only 40 Watts.
0309 - I switched to an SDR in Michigan. OMG, what an improvement. S9+20 on peaks, mostly well above the noise which is S9+10.
0354 - signal is fading out and the static is dominating. I need to go anyway. Good night.

I don't STRETCH the truth.

Every minute Charlie squats in the bush, his signal gets stronger."
