Barely hear 4032 on Barrington Hills IL sdr at 0215 utc, at 0226 tried Traverse City MI sdr with fair/good S9+10 signal, at 0232 song "bad girl" then "bad to the bone", songs with the word "bad" in them.

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
