0058z Music. SIO 544. Peaking over S9+10 via Airspy HF+D and 31' vertical. Big carrier. Modulation seems a little low but otherwise a decent to good copy.
0100z - Ballsmacker Radio ID.
0105z - Modulation is picking up. Trending SIO 545.
0121z - Some static crashing but averaging ~40dB SNR with 45dB+ peaks. DSB sync tuning.

Thanks for the broadcast! :)

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
