Tuned in at 2300 utc on Traverse City MI sdr with weak noisy S9 to S9+10 signal, barely hear any audio,

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

Very weak signal in Northwestern NC this evening, using an IC-7300 with a BKW wire dipole. Barely over the noise floor but I can hear music with small peaks at times.

Typically using an IC-7300 or 7610 with a BKW dipole or an IC-746PRO with a DX Commander. Located in western North Carolina! DM for QSL, love collecting cards!
