About S7 here, great to hear JB again tonight!

JB giving a good talk about propagation in the winter, and the problem with 43 meters closing down for NVIS at night.

Catching JB here with a S8 and good audio but fading out fast at times. Was better on 6880 around here. Thanks for being on again!

3440 kHz, 0218 UTC, SINPO 23332 into Northern Kentucky.
The signal on 6880kHz was a lot stronger even despite the conditions.
Audio is barley readable on this alternative frequency.

Thanks WHYP for the show and a Happy 2015 with better conditions.

Good signal here since 0205, but a lot more noise than 6.880. Hearing Bird is The Word, The Witch by The Sonics, and Thomas Dolby with She Blinded me With Science. Always enjoy JB's commentary between songs.
