I saw that, too.  Pretty good signal, though!

Lot of local noise on this frequency for me.
Can make out music and undefined talk by OM.

To bad. :(

Its ok John. Nothing serious. Blew up a capacitor I think. Should have it fixed pretty quick. I think the extremes of hot and cold in the bunker are putting some strain on the components.

I thought that's what happened. I had the sound of someone tuning up, some swooshes, and then nada.

I hope it's nothing too serious.
