Hearing B52's Channel Z at 2224.

2242 "Groovin'"

About an S5 here with only about 14" of compacted white stuff on the ground; been a relatively easy winter here.

Thanks for the positive summer mojo, Z!

Hi,

Channel Z heard here in Western Europe since 2218 UTC, on 6950.7 kHz AM mode
very weak with machine-like utility QRM,
good enough to get the ID an several songs (i.e. excerpt from "Hair" at 2310).

Still there at 2318 UTC

No other broadcast signal around 6925 - 6960.
