Was already tuned to 6876 due to email from xtal ship, fair sig, heard it come on at 0024utc, tune I couldn't ID, then stn ID, then "green tambourine", now "yummy love in tummy", R2000 & dipole. (edit) some signal drop outs. More bubble gum music, more dropouts. 2nd edit: signal beginning to slowly fade a bit. tcsshortwave@gmail.com. 3rd edit: more signal dropouts, signal weaker 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

Good signal using SAM, but ute on 6.875 is messing up reception some. Still, pretty good that it is getting through like it is!

Thanks Mr. Poet for the show!!!!! We appreciate it.

Switched to DSB and that made a big improvement. Good audio.

Crystal Ship, 6876, 0100, 9/26/14.  Bubble gum music ("Wonder what your doing tonight, Indian giver, red rubber ball") fake ad, ID and e mail Tarzan yell, announcing songs from 1967 on TCS, "Love grows where my Rosemary goes," a couple of sudden song changes before the end at 0113 & 0115.

Great signal!

Thanks for the show Poet.
