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

0140z - Music. SINPO 54333. Peaking over S9+20 via RTL-SDR v4 and 148' loop-on-ground. Some occasional audio drops. Moderate to intense static crashing at times.
0146z - CW transmissions? (Alternatively. it could be the UTE below hitting my DSP filter.)
0150z - Sounding like a possible intermittent UTE underneath the broadcast.
0220z - Music. Swapped local SDRs. ~S8 via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. Good audio quality.
0315z - Music. Metallica.
0332z - SSTV
0339z - Waterfall image.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

Tuned in just as he was shouting out Skipmuck. Barely above the noise out here near Seattle, but very solid reception when tuning in via the Northern Utah SDR tonight.

0331 UTC: SSTV transmission. Some of those noises are breaking through nicely on my radio.
