I Have been listening for 2 hours now.. BOR Blue Grass Music ..QSB on signal .. from 2-2 to 5-9 + with lots of fading & Noise.  Quite a difference from a few nights back!

Thanks for the report, Vinylman. Running low power tonight...only 25 watts. That will increase to about 125 watts soon for AM broadcasts. Also working on a solution to boost the modulation. Thanks for listening...BOR  ;)

Its remarkable but I can actually hear some of your audio ever so slightly through the noise here even with you at 25 watts.

SDR recording catch.

Not much more than a carrier, some faint traces of audio, or just my imagination, just before sign off at 0545 noted on the SDR recording.
