Hugely inbooming on portable while walking for smokes to 7-11. Heard from interval signal for the first time. Loved the "Allens alley" snippet with Titus Moody saying "I don't hold with furniture that talks". Signal filled the funky little bar graph S-meter on PL660.

Tuned in at 0300 to an ID.  Still there at 0329.

SINPO "fair" to "poor" signal with atmospheric noise.

Just a bit better than "useable"


Thanks for the broadcast,

Just tuned in at 0351z to an ID, then into Cream "Sunshine Of Your Love"
Very nice S9+5 signal here against some local RFI I've been fighting for weeks.

Great to hear you again.

Recorder Catch on 6925USB

Sounding great here even though only recording at 2400Hz USB.  Signal strength History shows a rock solid signal at better than S9+10 throughout the entire show.  Playing a great selection of music described as "the good, the bad, and the ugly of love songs"

Thanks redhat and OP!
