Was monitoring 6925 and suddenly came on with music at 0050 utc, sounds like Grateful Dead, fair sig, very little static, R2000 & 7mhz dipole. Id at 0055œutc but I didn't catch it because it sounded like he was whispering. (edit) Song "sending out an SOS", now a punk rock tune, signal got stronger too.

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

Catching XLR8 here at a S6-7 but fighting to stay above the heavy storm static west of here. Did catch whisper ID at 0104. Thanks for the show XLR8, nice tunes being played but too bad for so much storm static this evening. :-\
