Also making it into South Central Lower Michigan....  at 0150-0155+ ....

S4 to 4+ (using SINPO's 1-5 scale) with the 'preaching' to turn on a transmitter and then head banging stuff.
Whoever this is, it sure ain't Sinatra!  ;D
DXing *either* from:
MI -- South Central Lower Michigan with a 25 m randomwire and a LOT of local noise!
or
MI2 -- the tip of Michigan's Thumb with a 100 metre longwire and much quieter conditions.  Radios can be either an SPR-4 or IC-R71A or SDRplay

QSLs appreciated! radioguy73@gmail.com

Great signal on barefoot PL660. Intuned at 2:16z to music, none of which I recognized. At 2:34 as I was about to enter the no reception zone (7-11's parking lot) I heard Mr Weed repeatedly mention "star fucker". Thinking I was about to hear one of my favorite Stones songs I lingered for a minute but I was soon disappointed. After I came out of the store Mr Weed was apparently perusing porn on his phone trying to reload his browser,a problem we all have from time to time. Really nice sounding show , especially considering I was using a portable with no external antenna. Thanks for the entertaining show which ended as I reached my front door ...perfect timng.
