Was already tuned to 6950, fair/poor/static, R8 and dipole, heard ID XLR8 twice, psychedelic and jazz rock from late 60's & early 70's, I haven't heard those tunes in decades, thanks.

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

Good signal but lots of noise here at 03:40, id at about 03:38. Nice to hear a station on fairly late.

SDR recording catch.

May have signed on as early as 0206 with one song which I heard, then dead air until around 0234.
Generally an SIO 444 here.
