Hi Bill,

Thanks for letting me know; glad to see you are still tuning around.  Your QSL card was mailed to the maildrop operator on Friday, so hopefully you'll be receiving it later this week.

Nice AM audio here at 0030 UTC with Channel Z and Andy Walker playing first songs of artists before they were famous. This is a repeat of a previous broadcast....listening to early Lemme with Dandy at 0046 UTC. Great to hear a truly professional free radio show in the 49 meter band! Solid S9 at 0050 UTC...thanks Andy and thanks Z!!!
Since 0050 UTC, I've been getting some QRM sounding like an electric fan...signal still over the top of that though!
0106 UTC End of Part 2 and then right into Part 3...awesome! Song by the Mascots? at 0110 UTC
{Time to turn off the PC and relax with Channel Z on the radio until slumber takes over from the real world! Thanks again Andy and Z!}

S7 fading down to S3 at 0128z. 6950.5 am. Nice clear audio. 35333. Just heard Andy Walker talking about a 1966 tune. Saw "Pirate Radio" on cable last night and he sounds like he could've been on that ship.
