Where on the West Coast are you BOR? I'm in the SF East Bay, and it's a weak signal here - about an S2 on my homebuilt regen receiver. I can tell it's there, but can't make out much.

Hearing Rockwell "Somebody's Watching Me" at 0130z
Stevie Wonder "Superstition" at 0133z
UNID song (possibly due to weak sigs, or just my poor music knowledge) at 0137z
Blue Oyster Cult "Don't Fear The Reaper" at 0142z
UNID song at 0147z
Thomas Dolby "She Blinded Me With Science" at 0153z
Talking Heads "Psychokiller" at 0157z
Rolling Stones "Paint It Black" at 0201z
Michael Jackson "Thriller" at 0205z
The Who "Won't Get Fooled Again" at 0212z
UNID song at 0221 (weak sigs)
Prince "Let's Go Crazy" at 0230z
Santana "Black Magic Woman" at 0235z
UNID song at 0239z
Signal a little stronger at 0250z here in the SF East Bay.
