Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. 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

Unable to copy on AM or either sideband due to UTE QRM on either side [too close to passband]
Carrier is still visible...
Perhaps at night, they need to go back down to 3395 if QRM keeps up...
I was able to listen to CBS announcements earlier today, old commercials like Tooth POWDER & Gunsmoke..!

I heard them about an hour ago running old commercials and music. If it wasn't for lightning strikes to my west, this would have been the best I've ever heard them.

I decided to save my hearing for quieter times.

Old Time Radio, 6770 AM, 0146, 9/9/14.  Big band music into story.

Hard to understand, so I can't tell what the story is about.

However, this is much better than the usual, tiny carrier I see with no audio.
