Sign on with Dirty Water, but very tough copy tonight, getting hammered by Celestial and the NJ TIS.

Also caught the Dirty Water sign on, but soon lost despite a real quiet noise floor here.  Overtaken by the usual suspects on 1710.  0141z, starting to fade up slightly over the others.  Moved to 1720 at 0149z, S5-S6 copy.  VFO swished down to 1710 at 0241z.

Great signal tonight at 0213 UTC on 1720 KHz AM! I put up a 250' dipole today just to catch some of the recent mediumwave action and it's paying off. S9+10 signal with PRB reading listener letters at 0213 and then back into music with Harry Nilsson.

I'm absolutely stunned - have him quite good here in NE Ohio !!!!!!  

Positive station IDs and into a Bob Marley song now.

I'm using a 120' inverted L about 12' off the ground.  A little local noise, but otherwise good.  SIO= 4 5 4

Is it still on 1710 at 0330? If so, I'll try driving away from the noise & listening
