Catching it here also just above the noise floor at a S4-5. Heard "Now Hear This" repeated at 0016. Also hearing parts of the Galatic Barrier, Condition Red and Invasion. Doing pretty good with half of the antenna. Thx whoever you are for the really cool show. ;D

Good signal but lots of noise. Sounds a show from OTR with the drama. Good pirate radio stuff. Thanks for the cool show and fun trying to figure out what's going on. Signal S8 and getting better.
