Catching The Crystal Ship here doing their new "Echo's of 1968" with Steppenwolf playing at 2157 into ID at 2201 into Mike Wallace news report and then into "Sky Pilot" at 2206. Stones "Jumping Jack Flash" playing at 2210. ID at 2213 and talking about ending the bloodshed in Vietnam and our cities. Manfred Mann 'Mighty Quinn at 2215. Signal is a S6-7 at best right now, lots of fading. Propagation gods not being nice right now. Thanks JP for the new show!

Noisy here, but readable.  2210 UTC - The Rolling Stones - Jumpin' Jack Flash.  Nice AM audio, good modulation.  S8 on the K2SDR WebSDR with some fading.  Readable, but much weaker and fighting the local QRN at my local RX setup.  Carrier appears to be very slightly below 6876 kHz on the waterfall.  I'd say 6875.90 or 6875.95 kHz.  

Fading is getting a bit more noticeable at 2212 UTC but I can hear the 'Stones all right!  Thanks JP!
