2256 UTC Mr Sycko chatting...shoutouts to Molvania Poacher, Dr Strangelove, and me (Thanks!)..."not bad for a homemade transmitter"
2259 UTC "World of Pain"-Cream, followed by an unid 60's psych/folk song-OM singers
2304 UTC Unid 60's folk rock song-OM singers

2351 UTC Sudden S7 signal and solid above the noise with another unid song

S3-S5 on my sdr here in Central Wisconsin at or just above the noise level caught Sycko Radio ID a few times. How many watts are you running tonight? Can you send an SSTV of the homemade transmitter?

0015: Noisy S5 signal with an unshamazible(?) song. Late hit; No One Else?
0017: Op hoping that someone is listening to his 8 watts of power. Talking about redhat helping with the transmitter.
