0203z - I can see a little bit of carrier on the waterfall, but there's barely anything coming through. Occasional fades of music.

Crystal Ship, 6876 AM, 0205, 7/19/15.  Talk including ID, rock.

Fair in noisy and fading conditions.

Thanks for the show JP.

Picking up TCS Shortwave tonight at 0200 UTC tune in here in northern NJ. Program of music in progress. Signal quite strong, but hampered by incessant static bursts and noise. SIO=353 on the Eton e1 + attic mounted Eavesdropper antenna.

Thanks for the program tonight, John Poet. Always a pleasure to tune in to TCS.

Tried to break through at grey line, heard Rush around 0145z, then faded out before I could catch an ID.

 Trying yet another receiving antenna, this time a 1/8 wavelength vertical loop mounted on a wooden fence near my window. Much quieter than the random wire along that fence last week, with better intelligibility. Probably the first time in a couple of years I've been able to catch a few broadcasts without taking a portable outdoors.
