Fair to strong signal, S9 at times. But audio seems a bit weak making it tough for me at least.
Radios -- Perseus SDR // SDRPlay RSPdx // Icom IC-7300 // Tecsun PL-660 // Panasonic RF-5000A --Antennas-- Pixel Pro 1B loop - 82' fan-dipole at 40' - tuned MW/BCB 40" loop and 100' receive only dipole
-Brian--North of Detroit--MI-
1710/KHz the MW Pirate Clear Channel (not so much anymore "sigh")

Maybe it's me, but now audio seems stronger and coming in well at a solid S9....PRB on 1710.

EDIT: Always wanted to test this, so I ran out to the car and pulled her clear of the houses. Fair copy on the car radio, clearly heard the ID and email on 1710. Thanks PRB.
