S-on with old USSR national anthem at 0222½utc, fair sig, Kenwood R2000 & 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

Very strong signal at 10 dB over S9, but a bit distorted.

Excellent sound on USB...badly distorted on LSB. Hey DJ Dickweed...3 shows in one day...nice! "When you dance with your bobby sox, you dance at your own risk". Strange string sounding music now...whatever!

RFW, 0225, 3/2/14.  Various big band songs.  "One meat ball" right now (0242) - a personal favorite - thanks Dick Weed.

Good. Solid S8.

0221z Radio Free Whatever with a "RPM" show.  They have the dual Garrards spinning some 78's ("borrowed" from the library of Congress).  Good S9 signal in NH tonight.

Sounds great, keep spinning the tunes guys...

0328z Off, Thanks a lot - good show.  And it sounded like you were enjoying it as much as I was.
