Tough copy here, the signal is not bad, but the modulation may be low?
OK, better audio now. "Snoopy vs The Red Baron"

I have the same at about S9+10. Good signal but no ID so far.

Crystal ship 6850.5 AM  

Strong signal  S9+ into Northeast Ohio

I'm getting good modulation with no QRM or QRN, bit of fading.

Not quite sure what I'm hearing, sounds like someone yelling at revival.

OM with some adjacent station noise. Maybe needs better modulation, but can't be sure. Signal at S9 with a song playing. I think you need a wide filter setting to get the most out of the show. Seems to get better as time goes on.

Thanks for the show, Mr. Poet. Great to hear you again!
