Tuned in at 2103 utc on Brookfield WI sdr with weak S7-S9 signal, hear hard rock and shouting just above low noise level, at 2110 signal improving to S9+10 at times, now playing ethereal music sung by woman, at 2114 switched to Fair Hill MD sdr with fair/good S9+10 to S9+20 signal, very wide signal 10khz either side of carier, strange pop song with man singing about Mary Ann whoever she is, nice music, thanks. At 2146 electronic voice saying "technical difficulties, transmitter is smoking" then something in German, at 2153 switched back to Brookfield WI sdr with fair/good S9+10 to S9+20 signal, off at 2201, thanks for the program.

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

2123 UTC Tuned in to an unid euro rock tune-OM singer (S9 peaks with light fading and excellent audio)
2127 UTC OM synth voice in German?, followed by a rock tune in German
2136 UTC Rock tune with swirling organ intro

Enjoying the tunes here Sternradio! Seems a bit toned down from the harder edged euro rock in previous shows  8)

2201 UTC OFF

Thank you for the show!

Sorry I've been crappy about QSLing guys.  Smoking transmitters keep me busy.
