2325z S4 in NH, Noise peaks to S8 make copy difficult
2329z End of Sgt. Preston episode into Quaker Puffed Wheat/Rice ad
0000z Still in there, drifted up to 6880.8
0013z "Frontier Town", signal has come up out of the noise a bit now - much better copy

This station only shows a faint carrier/line on the home rig,
but is listenable off a remote SDR in Massachusetts.

Drats :(

Fair here at 0100 UTC on 6880.6 with OTR program of indeterminate origin. Last night I googled Old Time Radio, and there are numerous websites streaming these programs. With my puny dial-up connection, I didn't bother logging into them to see if one was a match. Nice to have this though. A little too much storm noise here for decent copy though.
QSL's to poorbrookking >at< aol.com are greatly appreciated! All reception and postings using My radio, My antenna, and generally in real time(excluding posting of SSTV images!).

Nice signal , S7 to S9 here with good modulation. Transmitter drifting does make ECSS difficult though! Thanks for the show.

Just barely hear a carrier in ssb mode here in Chicagoland.

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

Old Time Radio Show Pirate, 6880.4, 0140, 5/24/14.  Just audible with ... old time radio show.

Barely audible, but can tell what it is.


Up to 6880.5 by about 0210.
