Barely hear anything under static. 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

Just got home from work and this was a SDR recorder catch. Caught The Shortwave ghost here with a S7 and good audio but suffering from storm static. Heard songs by the Troggs, Kingston Trio, Tom Petty, Guess Who and Byrds. ID's at 0058 and 0105. Thanks for the show this evening, great set of tunes my friend. ;D
