Got it at 0045U. Good signal now. Was rough at first like everyone said.

SS sounding mx
Rap
Blues
Country ballad song

Thanks for the show. Glad the audio and signal settled down. Some fades.

Add:  Signal is about 500 Hz into LSB and the USB side is 3 kHz wide. Really great sounding now! SINPO now 54455

 Also catching XLR8 here with a good S7 and audio, doing better with the storms being on USB playing Country/Folk music with whispered ID at 0116. Thanks for the show this evening XLR8. Been awhile since I have heard you. :)
