Tuned in at 2323utc, Moody Blues "nights in white satin" playing, fair/poor sig in NE Illinois, R-2000 & 7mhz dipole.
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

SDR recording catch. Fairly weak copy here, just an S unit or so above the noise floor most of the time.

Thanks for the show!
