Tuned in at 0104 utc on Barrington Hills IL sdr with weak noisy S7 to S9 signal, old Moody Blues tune playing, had to select SAL because of strong QRM from pirate on 6961 usb,

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
