Very nice signal today on my 40m folded dipole. Peaks to S9 with moderate fading. Borderhunter announcer testing in English at 1613 UTC. Then into music.

Nice signal in NY at 1635 with Cheap Trick, now into a live version of "Radar Love.  Very low noise and only slight fading.
Signal has improved to S8 now at 1657 UTC.  I can even hear it outside on my Grundig G6 and built in whip antenna.
