S9+20 on K3FEF, of course. Summertime conditions mean a background of continuous QRN.

I was hoping for a show about smoke:
Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
Smoke On the Water
some Smoky Robinson songs
that sort of thing....

I don't STRETCH the truth.

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

Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

Ballsmacker is now just fading up and being recognizable. Can't recognize songs much yet. Still, your signal is getting stronger as time passes. Thanks for the show and music.
