S5 and battling the summertime static.  Fair copy.

Up to S6 and pretty good copy @ 0018.
S7 and good copy @ 0025 with email again.  "Space Oddity" @ 0026.

Nice signal not bad here. Surging up to S7 and winning the fight against the static. Now giving a history of the voyage of the spacecraft.

S9+ with spacey theme and documentary stuff. Strange announcements in robot voice. Very good copy. (Especially from Pluto)

Fair to good signal competing with local noise source. S7 most of the time.

David Bowie on now.

Thanks for the show!

Tuned in at 0020utc, very weak signal, light static, ringing sound, ID, strange sound, more talking, (?) newhorizonsshortwave@gmail.com (?), song "ground control to major Tom", R2000 & dipole. (edit) I emailed him at 0031utc and it didn't bounce.

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
