I saw the email from TCS and was waiting and heard it come on at 0013utc with a fair/poor signal, R2000 & dipole.
Drake R8, Kenwood R-2000, Panasonic RF-4900, Sony 2010, Realistic DX440, Grundig Satellit 500, 7mhz backyard dipole, Mt Prospect, IL 20miles (32km) NW of downtown Chicago. I have been using online receivers because of strong data hash interference in my neighborhood that I believe is caused by Uverse squeezing up to 100mb/sec through ordinary pairs of wires. I don't have Uverse but neighbors do. williamhassig@yahoo.com

Heard Sign On @ 0013 UTC and noted Music shortly after. However….very Weak tonight, barely above the noise level.
Usually TCS is very strong here, but tonight must be a different Tx Location than the past few Broadcasts???
Bits of  Music breaking through @ 0022 UTC, but not much to work with here tonight!!
Thanks for the Show TCS…Maybe things will pick up signal wise…..
Gotta give you a Minus 1 on the Richter Scale so far tonight John…….
Couple of Peaks in signal with Music from 0030-0038 UTC…but still can't make much out here….
I tried, but no cigar here tonight!
