Tuned in at 2233utc, poor sig, old beatles xmas tunes, I have it at approx 6950.5khz, did they move? Edit 2245utc, sig improving a bit, slow jazz version of "silent night" which segues into "aint no river wide enough" then into something else. Now chimes.

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
