Waterfall does show that MAC is there but only getting bits and pieces of audio. Too much noise as usual here. :-\

Really nice signal into Wyomissing:  10 dB over S9 and 54454.  There's a tiny bit of QRM.

The James Stewart Show.

At 2348+ arguing with his engineer about giving weather reports.


Thanks for a wonderful broadcast,


Ron

MAC Shortwave on 6951 AM at 0016 UTC with Jimmy Stewart, announcer. SINPO=35344, S9 signal.

Big Band music, 1940 - "Sierra Sue."

Thank you, MAC, I love this music!  P.S. - Would you believe there used to be a Big Band channel on Sirius Channel 4. It is currently not on, unsure if has been taken off the air. Are you serious? So thank you, MAC Shortwave for this music on Memorial Day weekend!

Please QSL.

73's,

Edward Insinger
