Quite strong and excellent audio into western PA SDR. 0135 my favorite Joe Jackson song, not that I love a whole bunch of them.

Big into SWDX late 70s through early 90s, then forgot about it and when I returned via SDRs it wasn't at all what I remembered, but I'll deal with it. Grumble, grumble. All SDRs acknowledged, nothing is from my own radio.

Tuned in at 0103 utc on Brookfield WI sdr with fair S9 to S9+10+ signal, song "here comes my girl" by Tom Petty & Heartbreakers, "Heartbreak Hotel" by Elvis, various tunes with the word "heart" or "heartbreak" in them, nice program, thanks.

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

I'm getting a very clear S9 signal on the Pittsburgh KiwiSDR.

Then the music started...

This one really is the gold standard, actual pleasant listening (SSB can't do that!) while I'm doing other things, more than just the novelty of finding a pirate radio station.

Caught the tail end of Ball Smacker Radio at 0244z, fair signal into western NY.  Then off.
