Actually hearing it on the west coast, peaking about S2. This would be my first reception of PRB if that's who it is...

Very strong - and wide - AM signal.  I have him on centered on 6930.3, but audio is clear from 6925.5 to 6933.0.

I always look forward to the PRB shows - esp. holiday specials.

I tuned in at 0037utc, fair/poor sig, good audio, woman singing now at 0039utc.
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
