Sounds like a remix of "One Thing Leads to Another". Thanks for the remixes!

Very nice copy here, S9 on the 545 and I have the audio pretty wide open at +/- 6 kHz.

Fair into Wyomissing.  Basic strength is good, but fading is a continuing problem.   SynchroAm helps.

1515  Green-Eyed Lady playing right now.

At 1626 listening to THX 1138 on the K2SDR WebSDR in NJ.  Heavy noise conditions prevent me from listening at my home QTH.  Nice signal on the peaks but there's a lot of noise fading in and out on the WebSDR.  UNID music at the moment.

Carrier seems to be just below 6925.00 kHz.  Somewhere closer to 6924.97 or 6924.94 kHz.  Still a nice wide AM signal so parking the tuner on 6925.00 yields the same audio (which is good on the peaks).  

1630 UTC - Little River Band - Lonesome Loser

1704: A Black In Black Mashup/remix

Returned to the listening post at about 1720 UTC.  Now I'm seeing a carrier on the waterfall display but the music is way down in the noise.  I can hear SOMETHING but I can't determine what it is or even what genre of music I'm hearing.

Pretty good considering 25 watts and how noisy the band has been this morning/this afternoon.  

Came back up enough around 1730 UTC for me to hear "Jessie's Girl" but still heavy QSB
