0125Z 45444 S7 April Wine "Sign of the Gypsy Queen"
0127Z 45444 S7 ID "You are listening to The Crystal Ship"
0306Z Off air

Listened until signoff. Signal was pretty good with static crashes, but slowly decreasing in the last half hour or so. Also had a het nearby.

I was listening on a Panasonic RF 2900 with the whip and they were booming in here.  Sounded good.  Couldn't get HFU to pull up last night to log it.
R-390a, WJ-8718, Rohde & Schwarz EK07 and EK56, Siemens E311, 51-J4, R8, IC-7610. All reports are from my radios and antennas at my QTH.  Please QSL to morrisgarage770@msn.com   Northwest AL EM64
