Have OTR at 0000z at S9. Some kind of stand-up routine, but not sure who the comedian is.

Just signed online. Heard them tonight and last night too. Very weak, barely at noise floor, hear bits of audio. R8 & dipole.

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

Assuming this is OTR. About S8/S7 noise here at 0335z. Sounds like an old comedy routine, then a couple of commercials, one being Colgate tooth powder.

This was the best I've ever heard them. A solid signal on an old Grundig Yacht Boy 400 with just the whip. I first heard them around 21:00 with a "Wild Bill Hickok" episode with his loyal sidekick, Andy Devine. Then into music and comedy. When checked in at roughly 1:00 UTC. they were running W.C. Fields and Charley McCarthy. The last thing I heard was an Abbot and Costello routine, at roughly 1:30-1:40 utc.

The signal was still solid when I turned off the radio to go out, just after Abbot and Costello. I hadn't heard that particular bit since I was about 11. Dinner could wait.
