Fantastic signal with great audio into the radio room north of Chicago - sometimes the transmitter is the easy part!  Starting up with a song by Geographer and interpol in queue.
Receiver is the Racal 6790/GM into a wire dipole in the attic.  Receiver audio is patched into a mixer board feeding a pair of Sony studio monitor speakers.

Song Request:  I am in the mood for something by the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs.  

My usual request for something by the Silversun Pickups would be good too.

Thanks for the great tunes! (and for keeping me up WAY past my bedtime)

Kudos on keeping the NC-183D in service. Good stuff.

I have a NC-125 in working order and great condition, though admittedly, it is more of a showpiece in the home office these days.

The excellent music tonight motivated me to bother with the preselector and preamp.

Now rocking a S9+30 signal into Florida via the 148' "shielded" loop flat on the ground in the backyard.
