Tuned in at 0234utc, fair sig, old heavy metal tune "hells bells" that starts with bells tolling, 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

Nice Clear 'BID Radio..... Burn It Down' @ 0307.

6960
0247z: Play Free Bird dude... oh, wait, they are.  Sounds like live or alternate cut, not the usual single.
0250z: "BID Radio.  Burn It Down"
0250z: Foreigner "Head Games"
0255z: Don Henley "Dirty Laundry"
0300z: Def Leppard "Rock of Ages".  GŁnter Grass Gets Grumpy Goobers.
0304z: Dead Kennedys version of "I Fought the Law"
0306z: BID Radio ID with Linkin Park "Burn it Down" background music
0306z: Blessid Union of Souls "I Wanna Be There"
0311z: Buttnekkid Wimmins "One Week"
0314z: Green Day "Good Riddance - Another Fork Stuck in Your Eye"
0317z: Sudden steeeeep faaaade out... sounds like Johnny Cash version of "Ghost Riders"
0321z: Johnny Cash "Boy Named Sue" - signal still pretty weak but easy to ID this tune.
0324z: When I was a young boy I threw away those John Cougar Meloncramp songs.  Except for "Check it Out", which is still a great song.
0328z: Journey "Wheel in the Sky"
0333z: No Doubt "Don't Speak".  That's right, Gwen, just git in the kitchen and make me a sammich.
0336z: Possible ID or announcer chatter, but signal faded to barely audible again.  Darned poopagation.  Gimme sunspots.
0338z: Poison - Ain't nuthin but a good time.  Jussst barely audible every minute or so.
0343z: Queen.  Scaramouche.  Very frightening.
0346z: BID Radio ID, announcer comments but dang signal faded too much to copy.



This all sounds like my first ex-wife's 8-track playlist.

Thanky kindly, BID, my first catch.  Signal started out great for first half hour, then the magical sky hamsters quit working.

Pretty strong signal here, SINPO=34433, which seemed stronger because noise was low. Until 0317z, when signal suddenly nosedived to 24422.  Picked up again a bit around 0324z, 23432, although local RFI heavier now too.
