Just signing on now, great S9 signal!

In fact, I can even hear you on my relatively crappy AOR 8200 with a whip antenna, inside the house.

2313z Radio Free Whatever sounding great in New Hampshire tonight, S9+, we've got DJ Dickweed and assistant Stavin tonight

With that post from Skipmuck I thought that might be a Skype number and tried to Skype it but it is a normal landline number so it cost $ to call it.  Yeah, I'm truly a cheap guy.  You should install Skype?

0018z Still sounding good at S9+

0040z One last call... from Pirate Radio Boston
0049z Off, Thanks guys - still S9+ at sign-off
