Below noise floor, hear bits of audio in am mode, detect carrier in usb mode, using Kenwood R-2000 and 7mhz dipole, 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago.
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

Slowly improving on my non-MW antenna. Leonard Cohen - Everybody Knows at 0255z.

Nice to hear this and our other pirate W807 right next to each other (1710).

Sadly, just a carrier about S3 here on a HF loop.  I guess its time to build one for MW, and chase the frog farts out of my RX.
