Good signal tonight  S9+, despite poor band conditions with geomag. storm

Great audio as usual, talking about upgrading to Windows 10

Dick Weed manning the controls by himself tonight.  Big signal, S9+ and sounding very good.
Down to S4 or less @ 0213, barely copying now.

Thanks for the great tunes while it lasted!

Got DJ Dickweed talking about his "new" computer at 0126z.

Killer S9+20 signal.

Big drop in signal at 0209z.  Now just above the noise.  >:(

Yes, DJ Dickweed, I am hearing you tonight with a decent signal here in Omaha.
Came across your signal @ 0125 and sounding good despite noisy conditions on the band here.

0130z: Ditto here, not strong, just enough to copy some chatter and music.
0141z: "...sparks flying everywhere..." DJ chatter peaking through the noise a bit better now.

Tuned in at 0137, strong signal with rock music, R2000 & dipole, dickweeddj@gmail.com

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

Very strong tonight, 60 over S9.  Had to attenuate the signal.  I almost never have to do that.  :)

Peaks to S9 here @145z with MGMT's "Time To Pretend"  About +24Hz according to the Elad FDM-S2, although it's not locked to anything.
I've got dinner on the stove and laundry in the works so not a whole lot of time to listen, but I'll be around
204z with live break from DJ DW.  Backselling music, last track was Morning Parade's "Alienation", and giving me sh*t :) Thanks for the shout!
208z...That's why I run Linux ;)
210z into some Jack White, signal is getting pretty rough here too, signal now about even with the static @S8.  You know the old saying, give it a minute, it'll change.
219z Live break following Noel Gallager's High Fly Birds, "Since you can't hear me anyway, go f*ck yourself, no just kidding.."

Sorry to hear you call it quits so early, look forward to your next show.

Thanks for the show, comrads!

Finally! The T-storm passed and quickly hooked up the antenna to find DJ Dickweed at the controls at 0141 UTC. S6 here and the prop is lousy plus a few residual snap, crackle, and pops from the receding storm.
But the music is coming through just fine!
0200 UTC Signal is down to S3 now with some peskie yakking too :(
I think the sun is having a bad day....

First heard the station at sign on with a booming signal

Can barely hear DJ Dickweed now.   Signal just about at noise level.
