Old-time music up on 1720 right now, could be a rebroadcast of the RFW's show that I heard earlier on 6925.  S4 signal.

I've heard a couple of RFW IDs now.  Thanks for the medium wave surprise tonight!

Hearing the same thing here in Ohio. Thought that the broadcast sounded the same.

Nothing heard since 0503 after Radio Free Whatever's email address was given out.

Got it here in Chicago. Talk of the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor at 0415z.
Just above the noise floor here, about S2. Seems to be slowly improving.

Heard here at 0432z with clear ID. Signal is only S2 but my ground-mounted vertical helps suppress the static crashes.

I'm not sure if they are still on but I see a weak carrier on 1720. I'm not "antenna'ed" for good Medium wave reception right now.
