'Bout an S6 here, but will undoubtedly improve.  Hearing Jimmy Stewart talking.

0032 the MAC Weather Report - now about an S9 and holding it's own against the storm QRN

tuned in at 0005utc, poor with tons of static from storms west of here, light classical music, DJ said "now I put you to sleep, Ray Block (Bloch?) with music from movie spellbound", now more music for mopes from the 50's (ha-ha), R2000 & dipole. (edit @ 0025) just heard thunder, had to disconnect antenna and turn off set. Oh, BTW, macshortwave@gmail.com and macshortwave@yahoo.com

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.

6950 AM 0044+ JUN 29
Can barely hear music and op's voice but signal is very faint and deep in the noise floor.  Best heard, as it is, in LSB.
By 0120 signal improved enough to hear op wish listeners a good week and a happy 4th.  A song by Sinatra(?) followed and then lost signal or s/off around 0125.
