Excellent signal. DW with some shoutouts & Superlove "Go"

I've also been listening some on a new Panasonic RF-2200. Good signal with just the whip antenna, but the tuning is really touchy with the BFO

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

0037- Around S3-5, DJDW w/music. Noisy due to thunderstorms across the Colorado Front Range.
I did install a new LDG 9:1 balun today, it did bring down the neighborhood QRM by a lot. Too bad it doesn't filter lightning static.... :(

Peaking just over S9 in Charles Town WV, G5RV in attic, Icom 7300  Pre-amp off.
Great music! I'm tired of the same-old same-old that others play!
Icom 7300 with G5RV INSIDE the attic, unless specified otherwise.

Too many radios to list.  Mini-whip, Home-brew Mag-loop, are also on the antenna switch.
